Hi Everyone, I’m thinking about having my bikes Akront Aluminium wheel rims refurbed and respoked with stainless spokes as they are well past their best.  Anyone have any recommendations who they have used and would recommend?

The obvious one is Central Wheels at Coleshill, but they are quite expensive. I used them several years ago for a Triton I was building. I couldn't fault their work.

Yes, I've used Central Wheels a number of times and been happy with both their materials and work. I have heard others complain but no idea why.

I’ve not used them, but I have heard some great reports about them. I’ll certainly consider them next time.

+1 for Central Wheels.
I had a Norton rear wheel re-laced and was happy with the price and service.
