airhead cafe racer project

so, as i'm filing away, my mind turn's to wheels, i know that i want eighteen inch rims, front and rear, i pay a visit to my-ma's shed where the over-spill of bike bit's that i've accumulated over the years are stored, [uum, the mz 250 flat-tracker project i bought a few years ago in a drunken, saturday night e-bay frenzy, must get around to that one day, i fancy another dirty, smelly, loud stroker, did i mention my mate jase's spondon yamaha project by the way? wait 'til you see this bad-boy!] sorry, anyhoo, back to the wheel's, top, the chunky, late eighties, upside down peace sign thing's? second photo, the ubiquitous bmw, seventies 'snowflake' design? or last but by no means least, my favourite's the decade spanning ally rim and spoke combo, this has got to be the way to go for me, powdercoated satin black rim's, stainless spokes and the hub's, front and rear, hit with the milling machine like on the racer and powdercoated satin black, i'm waiting, your thought's greatfully received, might not take any notice but if you have an opinion chip in........


  1. Spokes, every time!!
    Looks like it's coming along nicely.
    Cheers, Andy

  2. yeah, i knew that all along really andy! the cast wheels are just too 'heavy' looking, spokes and ally rim,s are the way to go, loads of work to do yet, i need to concentrate on getting the sporty on the road and the boxer race bike on the track, this is just a diversion to keep me occupied since the 'macchi was finished, enjoyed looking at the 'donkee's blog, very cool mate, tim.
