Pics of Woody's NEW ,TRICK,Superlite hubs R1200GS/GSA/HP-2


In the beginning:


then...


then...



then...


then...



then drill the spoke holes...


then...SUPERLITE hub #001 got Superlaced to 2.50x18 double signature Excel,,,weight saved ????
...circa 3lbs ,,,,cost????...less than Excels version,,AND,,made in USA


The hubs alone are just shy of half the weight of the BMW stock hub 29oz vs 56oz .Fewer number of spokes saves more weight without sacrificing strength....ie:36 vs 40. Woody will chime in later with more tidbits. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

Chris

PS: Well,,,,we did it ,,they've been at the anodizers ,,the clear ones come back this afternoon,, the black and blues arrive in a week or two.,,,rear hub #001 will go to Jan Udholm in Danemark,,,he has been waiting more than patiently,,,it's being Superlaced with Supersized ss spokes n nipples to a 2,5x18 double signature black Excel,,double rim-locks. That's a pic of his pre-laced wheel going on test run to check that everything will be just right...
a tubeless version of this will be offered in the very near future featuring Alpina tubeless nipple technology

Front hubs are in the lathe and mill as i write,,perhaps today,,tomorrow
FYI,,,They will come in single disc and double disc version,,,probably use 300mm and/or 320mm Braking wavy rotors ,,,, and give you circa 5lb+ weight saving,,,

ATTABOYS,,to my buddy Mike Berry from MB Precision Machining for helping me make em happen and to Jim Rowley whose quest for a lighter stronger 1150 Special provided the inspiration...

You won't get lead poisening from licking these hubs, but you might get it from drinking your tea when your wife finds out that you've blown another paycheck on more "crap" for your bike.

Looking forward to seeing your front hub Woody

i wouldn't be surprised if the net measurements on these two front wheels matched...outside of the bearings speedo drive etc,,,,you've got me thinking...

experience has shown me that manufacturers often have lot's of overlap in setting up different bikes,,,,ie the main node points remain the same,,,now i'm curious,,have got a 100gspd sitting in my work area,,,
will report,,,man that would be some nifty news for you all...
