Bluhduh Looking for rear airhead "snowflake" drum brake wheel

Ok so.....

After inspecting the wobbly wheel on my newly purchased 1978 R100/7, I find that the steel sleeve holding the bearings is trashed and the wheel is useless.

So I am looking for a snowflake rear wheel off of a 1974-1982 airhead WITH DRUM BRAKE. Everyone and their mother has the rear wheel for a disk but I am having a hard time finding a replacement wheel with drum.

Looks like this......

Ehpron, the snowflakes have a steel sleeve holding the bearing races. Unless the race is loose in the hub, your wheel just needs new bearings...

From my understanding the sleeve has worn into the actual wheel hub, though I need to take a look at it when I get back into town, already tried having a reputable mechanic change the bearings and that was his feedback. Will follow up...

Offered here is my 1989 BMW R100GS. Currently at 876XX miles, running well. Many upgrades including Omega charging system, CC fork brace, Oil cooler relocation kit, Touratech racks for Zega Bags (Bags not included).
Bike needs a few things, Front tire, pushrod tube seals leak a bit, rear seal on trans has a slight leak , center stud on left valve cover stripped, muffler has a hole by rear mount (sounds great), and is cracked at front mount (I moved the clamp). Tach works intermittently.
With a little love this fine machine will continue to put a smile on the owners face adventuring into the future with elegant simplicity and reliability.
The bike can be seen weekends in Lloyd Neck, N.Y. or in and around NYC. Offered at $3950.

Want to buy 22mm flat handle bars from an earlier R/S. They were basically flat with the hand control area bent back a bit for natural wrist position.

Windshield - $50 + $10 shipping to lower US states

Previous owner of the R100R never installed it. I put about 25 miles on it and decided to take it off. The windshield and hardware are in excellent condition. Brand name is National Cycle.
