Wheels interchangeable '76 GL to '80 GLI?

Postby mprand » Tue Jul 31, 2012 12:22 pm



Recently purchased an 80 Interstate customized with a retro look. Not a bad look but it still has the Comstar wheels. I have been offered a decent deal on some '76 GL spoke wheels that would help complete the look. Will they bolt up?

I was looking at going the other way as I have a set of Comstars and a '75 with spoked wheels. Read somewhere that it wouldn't work but don't recall the details.
"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "
