Hello to all ,

We are looking for wheels for our Le Mans Race motorbike.  We are allowed to use 17" wheels because of the difficulty of finding  race rubber.  So to that end does anyone out there know of a wheel manufacturer building carbon fiber or mag wheels to fit our motorbikes.  I can find 18" ones but finding 17's is starting to be a bitch and Guzzi OEM wheels weigh a ton !

Thanks in advance

And what will 17 inch wheels do for your gearing?  No doubt you can get any custom billet wheels made.... $$$$$$$$$$ 

It must be true because it's on tv all the time.  :whistle:

I think there are only two gear ratios available (but I might be wrong).

What year motorbike is it ?

I really thought I could come up with link to one of our threads to answer this: nope. Had to go to the web, but found this image of the Purple Gang's hot-rod Moto Guzzi at Phillip Island. Not sure what it is, though. These do look like V11 wheels. And: yep, they're heavy!!

BST carbon wheels.

You will have to have them custom made. They might have something that would work with an MGS-01 type of set-up.

something tells me your not using a late model LeMans(2002-2005-6).

Best contact them directly. A front and rear rim ......probably gonna be 2-3 times the cost of what you have in the bike. just guessing 

more power to ya !!!!!:bier:

or you could go the forged mag ....Marchesini forged wheels. Front should not be a problem. Rear is where your going to have trouble 

because of the drive set-up.
