  1. Thank you for the tip. According to these blueprints OSET 17" rim is 1.6". Rim that I found on Ebay is WM1 1.60 X 17 - 36 hole newly made Akront / Italian style flanged alloy Measures 1.6875" inside bead and 2.25" outside. I also found another one for cheaper 18" x 1.4" x 36 https://www.ebay.com/itm/Alloy-Rim-1-4-X18-36-holes-Non-Flanged/232806251003?hash=item36345579fb:g:gZQAAOSwW8RbIsqN I agree, the tricky part is where to find spokes. OSET uses in 17" rear wheel - 36 x 12G x 198mm with 13mm nipples. After a lot of research I found a guy how can make custom spoke set to size https://www.ebay.com/itm/264937086310 Now is the questions what is the right spoke length for the 18" wheel, if my math is correct based on (17" rim / 198mm spoke) (19" rim / 221mm spoke) the 18" rim should have 209.5 mm spokes Let me know what you think
  2. Hi guys, Instead of mounting Shinko 241 19x3.5 tire, I really would like to convert rear tire to 18", it will allow me to find better options for rear tires. I'm aware of rear wheel conversion kit, but it is 17" and selection of tires is very limited, on top of that OSET doesn't have them in stock. Here is what I found on US Ebay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/WM1-1-60-X-17-36-hole-Akront-Italian-style-flanged-alloy-vintage-motorcycle-rim/164154392242?_trkparms=aid%3D1110006%26algo%3DHOMESPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D225074%26meid%3Dd1673bbf4ee14b7aabf24322216eb53d%26pid%3D100167%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D163655745238%26itm%3D164154392242%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D5411%26algv%3DDefaultOrganic&_trksid=p5411.c100167.m2940 This rim is 18" x 1.6 x 36H $89 I will only need to find 36 x 12mm spokes. Do you know which spokes will fit? Do they come in standard sizes for 18" Please let me know what you think before I place an order. Thanks
