anyone know what wire wheel I can use on the front of my 86?
Are you talking about a spoked wheel? and no.
yes a spoke rim..I know back in the 80s cycle world did a swap to spoke front and rear and picked up time in the 1/4..I just want a spoke front.
I can't think of anyone that sells a spoked wheel for the VMax. You might have to get one custom laced.
Check out kosman, they had them on front & rear of the max PeeWee rode for Cycleworld 1/4 mile times. Many years ago though.
Just curious...why would you want one? I assume for the looks?
I'd put a card in the spokes to hear what it sounded like at 145 mph! :biglaugh:
Hehe...sounds like a good way to start a fire.
Yes, for the looks..I have a smoothie on the rear and want a spoke for the front. I will P/C it back ...
there was a company in the uk that did a set years ago,i`ll see if i can track them down.
if not have you contacted someone like rc components who do wheels?
maybe they can point you in the right direction.
failing that,get the hubs made and pick up some rims and lace it yourself:eusa_dance:
That is my plan, I know there has to be a hub that will mount up to the breaks maybe a Vstar?
couldnt find the guys in the uk but i did find this
they might be of some help
the eagle wheel looks good
