76 CB360 Rims/Spokes/Tires
« on: Mar 05, 2019, 09:36:42 »
Looking to freshen up my Brat CB360 with some aluminum rims, stainless spokes, and some larger tires.

Looking at Sun Aluminum Rims, Buchanan Spokes, and a set of https://www.cokertire.com/tires/styles/motorcycle-bike/coker-beck-cycle-whitewall.html.

What set of rims, spokes, and nipples do I need?
Also are there any cons to a set-up like this? ie aluminum rims, stainless spokes?
Thank you.

The last 360 I built, I ran 18" aluminum rims front and back.  Just send your info to Buchanan and they will reply with a quote for the spokes and nipples that you will need.  They pretty much take all the pain out of the process.

Thank you for the help!
On a similar note, I've heard that these style vintage tires have bad handling?
Any idea if that holds water or not?

No personal experience, but considering they are a vintage replica tire and the fact that Coker doesn't recommend them on modern bikes, I would guess they don't handle well compared to a modern tire.  I would have no issues putting them on a chopper that's not supposed to handle well.

So Buchanan got back to me and recommended 1.60 front and 1.85 rear. Are these pretty standard sizes or should I switch it up? Thank you.

That's standard for this bike.  You don't want too wide, or you'll have clearance issues on frame and chain.

Any leads on tires that skinny that have a nice tall sidewall?
I really love the look of big tires on small rims but all the larger diameter tires are too wide.
