Title: 17" Front Wheel for 1st Gen C10 on ebay
Post by: CRocker on February 26, 2012, 06:33:51 pm
Just thought I would toss this out there...currently listed on ebay (item number 260966701536) is a 17" front wheel off a Kawasaki Zephyr 550...it's a little narrower than most of the conversion wheels...bike calls for a 110-17 front tire...I wonder how a 120-17 would fit...I have been thinking about this wheel for a while, but, am not interested in pursuing it...considering the ZRX front end sitting in my garage...but, I have compared microfiche pictures of that Zephyr and my '88 C10 front wheels...all of the wheel internals...bearings, spacers, seals, axles are the same...only the speedo drive is different...and I think the Zephyr speedo drive would work as a package on an '86-'93 C10...

One minor problem is the brake rotor diameter...that little Zephyr 550 has larger diameter rotors than a 1st gen Connie...so, you would have to have caliper adapter brackets made up...

Those of you with more knowledge on this kind of thing...please jump in with your thoughts on the subject...

Do your own research...I have no affiliation with the seller...I have just told you what I have found...or think...and, I might add, I have been wrong before...hence the ZRX1100 front end that I need to get rid of...but, if I was considering this option for my Connie...the buy it now of $49.99 with free shipping would be enough for me to jump on it.
