Does anyone know if there is a Lester rear wheel available for the 1000's or 1100's that is for a 17 inch tire. I have two 16 inch rears.

I have only heard of 16” and 18” wheels from Lester. It seems I recall a recent post of a different maker who offered a 17”.

Thanks guys. I have three 16" rears and two 19" fronts. I'll sell one front and two rears if anybody needs them. The front is a right side speedo Drive. '75-'77 I think and the rears will fit 1000's & 1100's.

I looked and found the Front Lester is an 18" wheel. It also has a new Bridgestone Spitfire on it.

My pm reply doesn't seem to be working, so here is my reply to snobrdr

I don't have a 19 inch. I was mistaken, it is an 18 inch. Here is a copy of my previous reply if you didn't get it.

Oops, Just looked up the receipt for the tire and found out it is an 18" wheel, but definitely for an '75-'77.
The wheel has new bearings & seal and there is a brand new Bridgestone Spitfire 110/90H18. Purchased 4/25/2017. I only had a couple hundred miles on it when I decided to put a custom front end on the bike and found out it wouldn't fit any more. I am asking $200 firm.
