Hi all
Just replaced the front brake pads on my 96 @ and discovered a sort of bulging around the front rim. Priced up a new wheel and that scared me lol.
So does anyone Know a good wheel rebuilder and a rough price for the job.Or does anyone have a good front wheel for sale.
Any help with this is very much appreciated. ;););)

Hi this is what Central Wheel Components sent to me and I have to say I have no dealings with them at all unless someone on here as had. This is not a recommendation just info

Many thanks for the enquiry.


We are unable to supply hubs for the Africa twin, however based on you sending us the hubs i can confirm the following prices:


Front Wheel:


1 21 x 1.85 36 Hole Morad Alloy rim £100.00 inc VAT
1 Set polished stainless spokes & nipples £55.00 inc VAT
1 Wheelbuild £44.00 inc VAT


Rear Wheel


1 17 x 3.00 32 Hole Morad Alloy Rim £131.00 inc VAT
1 Set polished stainless spokes & nipples £44.00 inc VAT
1 Wheelbuild £32.00 inc VAT


The prices quoted are for polished alloy rims, if you required Black or Gold anodised this would be an additional £17.00 per wheel.
We can also blast and powdercoat your hubs for you if required, this would be £35.00 per hub.


Return postage for a pair of wheels would be £20.00 and the turnaround time for this would be 3-4 weeks at this moment in time.


I hope this is of assistance and look forward to the opportunity to be of service to you.


Kind regards
Warren Harding

I used a DRZ400 front rim on my AT, bought the stainless spokes from Hagon, the rim for £15 and had it laced up for £50.

The AT rim is a 1.8" and the DRZ is 1.65" but this makes no odds at all - promise!

Hi, I had to change the corroded front wheel 2 years ago, to pass the MOT, and I am afraid the quoted figures are more or less what you need to pay for a new wheel (yes, 170 quid :mad:). Nice gift of driving in wintry conditions...
Unless you find a 2nd hand of course.

You can buy the rim and spindles and, for building the wheel, find a good bicycle repairer though.

Cheers
