Rims
« on: March 10, 2018, 12:32:32 PM »

Has anyone here fitted spoke rims on the GV?
If so, from what make?
Did you get it made or take it from a nother bike?

Hoping for reply.
Thx

Spoked rims require inner tubes. And you will need a new set of tyres suitable for use with inner tubes.
The cost of modern variants of this old school tech is more than the bike is worth

I got a price from a custom garage that could make this for me, the price came to about twice what i payd for the bike.

Thats why im hoping that there might be some other bikes that i can just swap from.

Thx for the reply

Is the swinging arm different between the RX and the GT/GV?

If not, then that means that the wheel will be compatible, so long as you use the axle and spacers as well.
