CB250N with spoked rims?
« on: Mar 22, 2017, 21:55:42 »
I've been thinking about giving the Honda a bit more retro look and thought about spoked rims. Is this even doable on this particular bike? Poland here, so the market is poor and I'm not gonna find older CB parts (like 350 wheels), but I'm willing to get those from ebay or smth. What wheels will fit? What should I pay attention to? I don't mind fitting and modding, but I'm gonna pass if that's a walk through the hell. Thanks in advance for any advice!

The 250 Nighthawks we got in the states had the same 16/18 sizes as the alloys most of the rest of the world got, but front brake was a drum, fork lowers were different as well with no provision for brake caliper mount.

PM me if you're interested in the parts needed.

Honda Rebel CMX250 front end will bolt right up.

I'm doing a comstar spoke conversion with parts supplied by Cafe Racer Kits in the UK. They do a bolt on conversion hub front and rear and I believe will also supply wheel and spokes, or you can get any spoked wheel second hand and chuck the original hub. I think their prices are reasonable. Depends on budget.
Run out of zip ties? Dental floss is an excellent alternative.
