Those wheels are amazing. Did you get that from the Kawi site? I have a similar picture stored on my computer.

Nope, I snatched that pic right from the source, www.borderlinecustomcycle.com. look under the "projects" link. It's a 1992 ZX7 with MV Agusta body, R1 tail, Duc swingarm, ohlins, aluminum tank, and nitrous... :joystick: :thumbsup:

Newly Designed Wheel for Honda VFR800 F4i in 3.5/5.5 x17

They've been reading VFRD!!!

That black bike is spectacular - can't pick the frame. but it has MV Agusta fairings with R1 tail on custom subframe...

Edit: a few posts in since I was writing mine... ZX-7R eh? Always liked them, and I'd love to build one up like that thing! Big bucks though.

I think their site is wrong. It is listed for a double swing arm, lists as fitting F4i also, and shows a wheel that uses bearings and has the sprocket mounted to it.

On their own website, they show SSSA wheels, but they appear to be single nut designs with 4 drive pins.

Might have to do a spindle conversion....

I think the additional cost is brought about by the fact the rear hub has an adapter to fit a Duc wheel with a single nut eliminating the four nuts of the VFR. I will post up a picture after I get back from Spring Mtn. race tract this weekend. I have run out of time and will miss out on using them at the track..

I have been working with Mr. Wakamatsu for about a year now trying to get this off the grount.

He first made a die for the Duck, and rather than go to that expense again he decided on the wheel adapter out of chrome molly.

Tooslow: that's awesome that you've gotten this rolling.

There may be some takers out there, especially the FrankenViffer crowd.

But not me, I like living in my house and sleeping in my own bed, right Neal?

Someday, hopefully, I'll get around to doing the single-nut hub mod, so I can slap on a rear mag wheel to match the Marchesini mag front I have on there now. It's incredible how much turn-in and steering effort are improved by slapping on a lighter hoop, so if I can remove even more rotating weight from the rear (combined with suspension mods), this bike will be an absolute dream to ride.

PS -- the linked picture was taken moments after I got the bike together, so please refrain from the usual poultry-related comments... :D

This single nut conversion hub was on Ebay last week for 175.00

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...0398&rd=1,1

Funny, that looks just like an RC30 hb/axle... David Silver Spares sold me one for UKP60 + VAT not too long ago. ($160 @ Ron Ayers).

Ciao,
