    There was a shop in Venice, CA on Lincoln Blvd. that refinished Borrani's. I drove by the other day and the shop is a construction project. Does anyone know if they closed for good or will they be coming back after construction?

    Closed for good, James Wilson has vanished. Few folks know how to get him to work for them, previous preferred customers. No longer available to the public, best of my knowledge.

    Borrani is very much alive. They'll make or fix any wheel you want.

    Precision Wire wheels owned by Cork Adams does great work. They do not stock new wheels but can repair them. Very nice person as well.

    That post about James Wilson made me chuckle! He had a very small shop, and was quite independent. His way of getting rid of you if he didn't know or like you was to just keep your wheels forever. I've often wondered what happened to him
