Rear Wheel Comstar Mod 16 to 18 inch
« on: Oct 04, 2017, 18:51:29 »
Hi there
I'm bastardizing a Honda CB750C into a tracker/racer thingy and was wondering if anyone know if I can take the hub/rotor/axle out of the 16" reverse comstar rear wheel and shove it into the bigger 18" CB750 reverse comstar. I'm not worried about splitting them, I just wonder if the five bolts round the outside correspond. I can live with the one inch difference twixt front 19" and back at 18" but 16" rear looks poxy.

Comstar bolts are actually rivets and not meant to be taken apart.   There is a Comstar to Spoke conversion you can do then get whatever size rim you would like. Not your ordinary Blog site.

Thanks a lot...  :) I'll look out for a donor wheel.

Everybody has spoked wheels, they're so.... common!
