Hello, can someone tell me what year wheels will work on my 1977 Goldwing.

Thanks for any help. Bob

Without any mods,
75-77 wire rear wheel
78-79 Comstar rear wheel
75-77 wire front wheel
78-79 Comstar front requires fork sliders, axle spacer and nut, brake calipers, all from 78-79
'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!

( Seriously, you haven't read all 115 pages of my http://www.wingovations.com website ?? :shock: )

I'm getting ready to compare the front rims between my 77 gw and a 83 silverwing. I'll let you know how it works out
