I have the spoke flanges already (he's selling them in limited quantaties), but my problem is that I haven't been able to source a spoked wheel for the 1993 GSX-R750 front end I have on the bike. So, until I find a spoked front rim that can take the proper bearing size for the front axle, and has the proper mounting bosses for the rotors, she'll stay with mag wheels.

OMG I want to marry that bike. There have been half a dozen CX's on craigslist in the last month and I've passed them over. I just don't like the stock look, but that is awesome! It looks like a great bike to convert. I would never paint and finish one a nice as this, I'd never want to get it dirty!

Hey guys... Hey Charles..

I am in South Africa, Cape Town to be precise and I have three of these bikes which i want to rebuild.. I have an additional two for spares.. One of the project bikes s the C model.

I have toyed with the idea of converting the rims to spokes on one of them.

Are decent spares available for the engines on these bikes..? I have managed in the past to source original bits but the supply seems to be running dry.
I am interestid in finding bits...

Also, I am not able to view your pics of the bike, Any chance you could mail them to me..?

Kind regards..
