Apart from Dymags, does anyone know if some other wheels from Japanese bikes will fit the 2006 t100.
For example, one of the bike mechanics can fit a CB250 wheel on the front for less than US$100 but they have five spokes and I am looking for three spokes.
Thanks in advance.

well you have 3 options:

-spend big money on mag wheels $2,000+ (US)
-buy some wheels and do some serious home work, machine work, and possibly some fabrication.
-relace your stock hubs to different sized rims $1000+

All options are expensive and/or difficult.

Few on this forum, or on this earth, have that much desire to do what you're asking. There's your answer. Time and/or money.

I'm interested. I'd been wondering about the interchangability of different Triumph front ends. What all was involved to fit the Daytona triple clamp to the bonnie frame neck? How do fork lengths/wheel diameters (including tires) compare?

If you email me pictures I'll post them.

If you want to see some great looking aluminum forged wheels that will fit the Bonneville and the Thrux, go to the British Customs web site and check out the Carrozzeria wheels.

I heard some wheels like those from cbr's might work. There has to be an alternative to those Carrozzeria with a $1900 price tag... any three spokers look a bit better too. that's my two cents.

I'm very interested at seeing some pics of this. I have been considering finding a frontend from a 675 to fit.

The 675 has a 41mm frontend, for those wondering why a 675.

A 675 front end and F/R wheels would look awesome, and I'm sure handle much better provided the rake/trail is right. I shudder to think what it would cost to buy from Triumph, and with the model being so new I bet they'll be hard to find on Fleabay.
