Hey guys, I have been absent from here for a while.. life has been getting away. I'm ready to start putting together my 350f that is in buckets and a pallet.

Looking at getting some new rims for it and wasn't sure what would be best. I saw these on the bay,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HONDA-CB350F-1973-ALUMINIUM-WHEEL-RIM-F-R-GOLD-/350542591850

And I thought they would be good with a set of SS spokes. But then I got to thinking about alloy mag wheels that I saw for a 400f online and if those rims would fit on a 350f.

Found some 400f wheels

http://www.ebay.com/itm/89-cb400f-cb400-cb1-cb-1-cb-1-honda-front-wheel-rim-/250700661600

http://www.ebay.com/itm/89-cb400f-cb400-cb1-cb-1-cb-1-back-rear-wheel-rim-honda-/220672966281

I have a restored stock 350f already and this one will be more race and cafe inspired/driven.

Or if anyone could steer me somewhere where I can research numbers myself would be cool too.

The modern 17" wheels will allow you much more choice in sticky modern rubber, but I think it deserves to have spokes. They just look more correct. The alloy rims and stainless spokes will be much light than stock as well so it's still a preformance upgrade

Oh and I'm not sure those would fit, but they were an example... and to be honest I'm leaning more to the aluminum spiked rims.. just wanted some input and education on if they are comparable to alloy mags
