    Aluminum 18" rims - 3.50, 2.75, 2.50, 2.15, 1.85, 36h & 40h, Akront & Borrani

    BUMP/UPDATE - All of the 40 hole rims are sold. I still have the 36's for sale, but don't mind hanging onto them as they will all work for the correct spoke angles for Suzuki GS hubs, so I'll probably take some of my spare rusty stock steel rim wire spoked wheels & upgrade them to these rims...

    Anyone riding Ohio to Barber Vintage Festival and back?

    If anyone is looking to ride from Ohio or West Virginia, to Barber, and back, I'm doing a solo extended twisty scenic mountains trip there this coming week, and riding a direct route back on Sunday from Barber to Ohio. If anyone is able to take the time off, and doesn't mind an extremely twisty...

    Anyone in Ohio wanna meet up/ ride?

    Also as I've advertised in the past since I first joined DTT years ago, I'm always looking for company to go point our sporty vintage bikes towards the hills and find the twistiest roads... I've got some seriously good route maps permanently burned into my brain, of the best you'll find in Ohio...

    Anyone in Ohio wanna meet up/ ride?

    Hurco, I think you are just northwest of me (Columbus), if I recall, correct? My buddy David (drey6) I think met up with your crew once several years ago. I haven't been on here much this year as I was totally out of commission with knee surgery in March & then Physical Therapy several times a...

    And here's a 2.15 rear match to my 1.85 front 40 hole Borrani Record if you were looking for stock-ish widths, or 1 size up on a small twin with 1.6/1.85 factory rims (difficult to get much selection of good tires for those anemically skinny stock sizes)...

    Aluminum 18" rims - 3.50, 2.75, 2.50, 2.15, 1.85, 36h & 40h, Akront & Borrani

    More pics of all these are on the way shortly, but the wife will be on her way home in 30 minutes so I gotta start on dinner real soon! Hang tight. I also have an old Morris Mag wheel with a Rickman bolt pattern sprocket carrier and disc rotor pattern. Cush drive side had been permanently...

    Here's the 2.75" TC rear & 2.15" TC front, 36 spoke Akront/Morad mode TC rims. non-flanged, non-shouldered/valenced, but with dimpled spoke holes (much preferred by me).

    Aluminum 18" rims - 3.50, 2.75, 2.50, 2.15, 1.85, 36h & 40h, Akront & Borrani

    Clearing out some shop space, I found myself with double the amount of aftermarket high performance wheels & rims vs. the amount of project bikes that I have... These need to be put to good use by upgrading your bike's anemically skinny stock heavy steel rims to wider 18" rims so you can run...

    Anyone in Ohio wanna meet up/ ride?

    I'm healing up and soon rehabbing from knee surgery, but really hoping to get out on the GS750 starting around Memorial Day Weekend here come late May. I'm somewhat familiar with those roads down Gallipolis and the Crown City Wildlife Mgmt. Area. There are some good gems there for sure. I've...

    Rickman CR parts sourcing, rear wheel spoke hub manufacturer, etc?

    Nice lookin' Ricky on the bench! I had 2 sets of high end 360mm shocks to use on the Rickman, slightly shorter may be a little more advised with concerns to chain tension (swingarm angle), but I was trying to reduce rake and trail as much as possible, as the frame is designed for a very short...

    Need info: katana swingarm on a gs450

    Did you ever end up finishing this? I think I am going to be setting up my 1947 Atlas MFB horizontal milling machine here this January, and I think that is the machine I will choose to use to narrow the GS1100E swingarm. I will make an offset tool bit holder sort of like a fly cutter, but use it...
