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.

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.
