rim replacement/substitutions

Post by ponyroller » Sun Jan 20, 2019 1:34 pm



I would like to substitute the 16 inch rim on the back of my 1983 gl 1100 for a 17 inch spoked rim that would fit more common sized 50/50 tires. Does anybody know if this is possible or if it has been done before? Any insights or advice would be appreciated.
I am trying to rebuild an 83 gl1100 to give it an off road treatment for a planned trip to tuktoyaktuk.
