Hi
What options are there for putting spoked wheels on a CX650 custom. I know these are different, wheel wise, to the general cx/gl family,
Thanks
Jay

easy peasy

get a vt800 shadow rear wheel and brake plate

the rear rim uses the same size tire you have now



then you need to get some 20mm od 17mm id tubing i get mine from parker steel /metric metal

cut 2 pieces one to go thru the rear wheel bearing to bearing and one to go thru the brake plate

the rear wheel will now go on using teh stock cx650 rear axke

but since its upside down to how it goes on the shadow you will have to make a new brake stay

for teh front get a cb750 dohc spoked front wheel and brake roto it will go right on

and i think if i remember right you need the cb750 front brake caliper mount as well

when done it looks like this

198947


198949


see how the brake stay is flipped up instead of down that is because the wheel is actually upside down but no one will notice

and it works the same

Cheers Murray. Have just got a good deal on some 18” boomerang wheels off a cx650 Eurosport which I believe will fit.
