Montesa Cota 123 rear rim

Hi, It sounds like it was pretty popular to upgrade these to 18" rear wheel so I am hoping someone may have a 17" Cota rim lurking in their shed they may want to sell? Mine looked okay on the outside but when the tire came off I found it is very rusty, to the point where the inner bead is ...
