WTB Tubeless Lester Wheels for a 1978 GW? wanted

Postby carlrf » Wed Nov 06, 2013 8:29 am



I am sure it's futile to ask, but will anyway.
:lol:
Is it possible to find some lester wheels designed for tubeless to fit a 1978 GW.

Thanks

I have a pair of rims from a '76 LTD that might work on your bike. Here is a picture of one of the rims.

What is your basis for thinking they might fit.

After looking on ebay for wheels it looks like the 75-77 are different than the 78 wheels. I though that they might be the same. Sorry to bother you, I didn't do any checking before I did the post.

The rear wheel will work from 1975 to 79 but the front wheel is different the 75-77 front wheel
is the same and the 78-79 wheel are the same the difference is in the brake set up for the
caliper mounts and the rotor mounts hope this helps.

They are available (Lesters) on EBay sometimes, I bought one about a year ago.

No worries. I was in question on those years applications as well.

Yeah, there is a rough front on there now for.the earlier years, but crazy high IMO.
