Comstar Wheels

Postby RacerM95 » Thu Nov 13, 2014 7:18 pm



Being a newbie to the Goldwing, please bear with me... I have seen pictures of Goldwings with the "Comstar" Wheels (5 Spoke Wheels as seen on the Honda CB750 Supersport F-1's as well as others) Does any one know where I can get a set for my GL1000 ?

Thank You in advance

What year is your bike. Takes a bit of work to put comstars on a pre1978 bike. Also be careful as the early comstars had rivet issues which got fixed in the later years. Avoid any loose rivet examples.

Rear Comstar from 78-79 model will fit straight on.
Due to many different problems, the best way to sort out the front is to fit the complete front end from one of those models.
You may find you can do a swap with someone, as the usual question is how to put wires onto the late model! :D

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!
