hi all

if you were to want a new set of wheels, ruling out NOS wheels, what would you go for to keep the retro look?

cheers

That's no use. He needs an entire circular rim, not a sawn off fragment.

Depends on the year you are trying to emulate.

Early 80's Ukai/phil/Bullseye or CBR
Mid 80's Araya RM20/CBR/Bullseye
Later 80's MA 40's 730, 732, Bullseye

etc etc
