I found 4 cracks about an inch long near where 4 spokes attach to the rim. I was wondering if it is possible to get a new rim and respoke the wheel, or if I need to find a new rear wheel?

Rear Rim Replacement

Should be able to just respoke with a new rim. Buchanan's is often mentioned for this sort of thing:


Here's a link to a guy who builds /2 wheels. This will provide some overview of the process. The details will likely be different for post '70 wheels.
