The inner diameter looks too big to be a wheel spacer. It almost looks about the diameter of the steering stem/bearing race? It also looks a bit like the metal is rough, like it broke off of something. Is that the case?

The inside measurement is 7/8. outside is 1 3/8 (oa) my work bench was pretty cluttered.
It might not even be fore the bike. But it sure looks bike'ish.I've researched the break-downs on everything I've done to it. and didn't see it anywhere. When I was tightening the rear brake caliper(which I had just rebuilt-resurfaced and painted) the pads was binding up on the rotor. I ended up putting the old pads back on that were still half life. So I thought it must be a spacer for the axle or swing arm,or caliper bracket. But everything seems to be correct. "DANGGIT"

I just changed rear wheel and it does not look like the spacer for the rear axle..... I dont think its from your bike... But keep it just in case!

thanks for playing along. I've been out there working on it all day and looked around several more times. i don't think it is a bike part. but it is going to be saved. one of the things i did today was. i changed out my front brake reservoir. i GOT A NEW ONE FROM ONE OF OUR SPONSOR'S
(PARTS AND MORE) $40 No wonder it was leaking. 30 years if ick inside. The o ring was disintegrated. And tons of build up on the surface and o-ring grooves. cleaned them up.sanded the TOP surfaces. And cleared the (Tiny Back Flow Hole) in the master cylinder.That I learned about on here.So far So good. Also i changed me break bleeders to "Speed Bleeders"
I will never use regular bleeder nuts again.i Highly recommend them. I found them in another article on here. i love this site. Everyone is very helpful. And i really appreciate it.
THANKS TO ALL,..BEN........."SHINY SIDE UP"
