Devon Rim Company do them. I saw them at the Bath & West show in Febuary this year. Black rims with very thick spokes looked great but the mirror polished rims and fat spokes gave me a hard on........ then I asked the price and that was like thinking of Maggie Thatcher!

Not cheap but they do look very nice.

Google Devon Rim Company.

Mate made his own for his Harley using car rims (Rover 820, I believe), got them drilled and dimpled and then laced up.
