is that GBP695 if you send your hub per wheel? Anyone know how much that is in the US?

From memory its around $2300 to purchase a Alpina wheel set for the Thruxton.

FCR, Uni, 813 cams, Works shocks, drilled Ricor valves, Pieman ignitor, green springs, Beringer caliper, preds, damper, brace, Corbin, custom tinware, JMC swingarm, Brembo radial M/C, oil cooler, rearsets, clip ons, tubeless rims, Acewell, T/Clamp

I'm seriously thinking of getting the Alpina wheels. Also very tired of cleaning and protecting the chrome on the current wheels. Here's the reply i got from Aplina usa with the pricing...


Hello James
The complete wheels are $2275 Shipped
with the RAT Discount it would be $2075 Shipped
Rim and Hub standard color is Black. Color options of Blue, Gold, Silver, red, orange are at no additional cost

The kits are $1100 Shipped
I think a complete wheel set would be better
as most wheel builders are not familiar with the Alpina Tubeless wheel assembly

Lead time for wheels are 2-4 weeks

I'm at the EICMA MC expo in Milan and we have news that we can do 5" rears.
