  • Wire Rims

    Covid 19 lock down has me looking for a project. Oil’s changed and the bikes checked out and ready to go ( snowing outside right now).

    Does anyone know if wire rims from an early 1600 will fit on a later year model 1700 that has cast rims. I realize there were brake and belt changes over the years but I don’t know how this would affect the hub flange. I’m not looking to perform open heart surgery for this, but if it’s an easy swap I have a line on some 00 rims in great shape.

    thanks

    I put 2006 cast wheels on my 2003 that came with spokes. Reverse should be possible, but I haven’t gone that way. I am sure others will chime in with more useful info.

      Yes they fit. You have to remove the bearings and spacers from the 1600 and replace them with the bearings and spacer from the 1700. My bike is an 07 and come from the factory with spoke wheels so spokes weren't just unique to the 1600's. But back to your question yes they will work with a simple bearing and spacer swap. Also use your pulley and cush drive from the 1700.
      Also before you buy a set of spoke wheels just ask here if anyone is willing to swap your cast for their spokes and my guess is that you will find many takers.

      2time....do you have cast wheels now, and are they in good shape, and would you sell? Location?

        I would be interested in a swap. I have a rear spoke rim and hub that will bolt right up to your bike.

          Thanks for the offers. I’ll be keeping the oem wheels for now. If that changes I will post.
