Anyone know what bike these Lesters are for??

Modgod1

1974 Honda CB550 Cafe Racer in Progress
It's a 19" front 18" rear, but what bike the rear is for I can't figure out? My guess is Harley or Kawasaki?

I find them all the time.
Owned many sets. Have 19/18 sets on both my CB750s (one K and one F)

Honestly none are going to just fall into your lap. Even less at the price you want.
You are going to have to go hunting.

How simple is pretty simple? What would it involve exactly in order to put non cb Lesters on a cb? I definitely wouldn't call myself a machinist, so what might be simple for you might not be simple for me.
 
its just some basic simple measurements,then take the parts to a competent machinist explain what you need

I may have fucked up then, because those Lester mags went for only around $246!

Yeah I know, it's a long story but I haven't posted on DTT for years because my café project was put on hold, because of financial issues, and some other things, but now I'm starting to get back into it, and for my first build I want to do something special, and it's basically just a looks thing, I can't say much more, purely a style issue. Although my second project will definitely be spokes and alloy rims, and probably all after that.

All non SOHC Lesters are near worthless.
i disagree a z1 set is probably more valuable than a cb set
the fronts are all the same except for the bolt pattern
as far as i am concerned there junk boat ankers the only non wire spoke wheels worth anything are magnesium morris, marchinseanee and PM's and thoas british ones dyemags
any of the aluminum cast wheels are just too heavy to be related to perf ;)
