Swapping cast wheels for spoked

Does anyone know if it possible to simply sawp the cast wheels on the standard Bonneville for spoked wheels as fitted on the T100/Thruxton?

Thanks, Ian

Speedo drive is on the other side. Probably other differences too.

You would be better off swapping the entire front end and wheels with another Bonnie owner. Certainly there's someone near you wanting cast wheels.
