Thanks

95$ shipped to my door.  It's off an 82'  KZ Police.  It came with the sprocket and carrier and cush rubbers.

I changed my mind on wheels again.

I re-found my 18" spoke rear and 19 spoke front in my barn.  It "looks" lighter to me and likely is, those mags are beefy.  These will line up in the stock swingarm and caliper better than the big KZP mag.  Neither of the two rear wheel photos have a disc mounted at the moment.

I like spokes much better than the mags.

Yep. I am a spoke kind of guy as well.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

 if you swap for an aluminum rim it will be even lighter. I don't know what year those KZP wheels came off but after 1980 they were designed to be tubeless so the weight savings are moot as the inner tube adds the weight difference back.

I like the mags and spokes for different reasons.  But having a set of those mags myself, I always marveled at how heavy they actually are.  The dual disc version are way worse.
