For a simple street system, DYNA from Vintage smoke.

Full replacement street system PD from Economy cycle

Programmable - Ignitech or Zeeltronics

Without lights - Motoplat or Hitachi or PVL CDI  -I have all three of those available...   :-)

Damn... that Dyna kit is almost as much as the PD. I guess I know which way I'll be headed.

Also, was the implication that you had some for sale or just that you've used them?

That's what I plan on doing with my latest GT750 4LS brake. An alternative is a TX750 rear alloy rim.

I assume you use a rear rim, instead of a front, for the spoke angle?

Any width recommendations?

I just happen to have a complete tx750 complete rear wheel sitting around if you find yourself in need

For a street bike the PD seems like a logical choice.  Yes I have a couple of self generating race ignitions left over from our TZ racing days.  I'd have to go and dig them out, but not too good on the street with total loss lights.

Yes rear drum type rim will work on the front.  WM2 1.85 front and WM3 rear, or WM3 2.15  front if you go with a 2.5" rear.

Will the GT750 drum fit onto a WM2 rim?

I don't see why not. That's what it was in on a GT550 or 750 back in the day (but 19")

I finally decided to open up the wrapped pipes and check them out. They're been well-loved in the past, it seems. No brand markings that I could see.

They'll probably get sold and go toward funding something from Higgspeed.

They really don't look to hateful as pipes go man. Id have someone who has the right software run those dimensions and run them anyways. Most of them will be under a fairing no?

Just a few scars and they say that chicks love scars, so.......

They will probably work OK if you have the mounting flanges.

You could always roll your own..
