Twins Aftermarket Wheels Thread

Not sure if there is a thread out there yet or not but I'd love to see what people are putting on their Thruxtons, Bonnies and Scramblers that are aftermarket.

Please specify:

Brand:
Model:
Size Diameter/Width Front and Rear:
Offset:
Color:
Link if possible
Tires

Pictures and maybe a reason and what you think of em would be awesome too!

'97 Honda CBR F3 wheels and forks: Longer fork tubes allow for clipons above the upper tripleclamp, Cartridge fork innards for a superior ride (preload and rebound adjustments), dual 320mm disc brakes up front. 17" wheels at both ends, 120-60/17, 160-60/17 sport touring tires, and a total of 20lbs of unsprung weight/rotating mass gone from stock. Personally, I think they look pretty badass as well.

That is bad ass. Did you get them cheap somewhere? I would love better forks and dual discs.

Love the wheels.

I am running these on my Thrux:

Brand: Carrozzeria
Model: V-Track Forged (1st Gen - no longer made in an 18 front)
Size Diameter/Width Front and Rear: 18x3.50 Front 17x5.50 Rear
Offset: none
Color: Black - Hard Anodized
Link if possible: http://www.forged-wheel.com/1SHOPTRITHRUXTON2009.htm (new style)
Tires: Avon Storm2 Ultra 110/80-18 & 150/70-17 (going to a 160/60 rear next now that I have a 944 kit's power/torque to deal with!)

As stated, reduction of unsprung weight is stunning and has a tremendous effect on handling. I hate tubes and tube type tires and was one of the reasons I made the switch...

Ebay is your friend. The wheels and forks show up regularly and there are several threads here on how to do the swap. I had budgetted about $1K for the job and it came out slighly less than that with new tires and brake pads.

Thanks man!! As is yours.

Mine would prob have ended up looking a lot like yours if I didn't already have a Black/Silver Monster S4RS in the garage when I bought the Red Dragon....

No firsthand experience, but I remember some posts regarding Talon wheelsets on Scramblers over on ADV last winter. Seems the best reason was a loss of something like 7 or 8 pounds of unsprung weight on that application.

When you say "whole setup" are we talking about the wheels or the insane amount of $ I have in the bike as a whole?

Wheels were on sale and still stupidly expensive @ 1500.00 for the pair inc speedo conversion (200.00 alone for the parts!!) etc etc....
