Cambria has some NOS ones for sale and was tempted to buy some for my project. They only have 32 spoke, silver. I noticed that Fat's, when ordered complete, were spec'd with 231's, but I can't find any of those.

Thanks for your reply.

Fat's from Somerville came with what ever rim was requested or readily available for a rim. We used to build wheels in batches of 100 or so at a time. It made for quick pocket money back in the day, (2 day of work) unfortunately someone (cough PW) under bid us.( we stil supplyed all the parts though) It was all good thought, he made lousy wheels and we ended up fixing them and getting even more money.
