It's metric and I think it's 145mm. I used a 5 3/4" (=146mm) Harley insert and had to file the rim a bit to get it to fit in there.

Hey Chip,
Thumperstuff.com sells all the body panels and stuff for that bike. Maybe holler over there. I've also found a few sites with vintage motocross stuff. PM me if thumperstuff doesn't work out.

I'm shoulders deep into this at the moment and chomping at the bit to finish.
