so i now have to see if excel can supply one with suitable drillings
They sure can. I have one. The drill pattern for the rear rim is the same as for my 450 EXC too so is pretty standard.

Jay, what is a "double flaged" excel rim, sounds like it could be what im after as youre 640A hub is the same as then one on mine?
"Double flagged" - doesn't mean much other than an OEM rim will have the text ("Excel Takasago Rim") in one location each side (single flagged) while a rim purchased aftermarket has the text in two location each side (double flagged). My rear rim is double flagged but if I have to buy a silver rim and have it anodised black to match my rear I lose the double flag on the front rim. Excel do not have any black anodised rims that are undrilled (blanks) in the US. I'm looking around here in Aus.
