Need help identifying these wheels
« on: January 01, 2018, 09:34:51 PM »
I got these wheels off of my dad, which he took off of a custom chopped honda cb750. He insists that that are original honda wheels, but they have no identifying logos or text on them. Also, i could not find any pictures anywhere of any standard honda cb750s with similar rims. This has lead me to believe that they are from a differrent motorcycle and i was wondering if anyone knew the original bike they are from?

P.S - the hole in the edge of the rear rim is not original and has been added after for a side facing valve, and the original inwards facing hole has been welded up.

What does that writing say inside the brake drum on rear wheel 2 ?

Very substantial cast wheels, most makers would be proud of those.
Don't look familiar though = aftermarket. ?

I cant remeber what the writing says off of the top of my head, as i dont have the wheels to hand, but i dont think it was anything significant enough to identify them by. And yea thats a very good point, they may well be aftermarkets.

They look like aftermarket CMA '5-spoke'.

The 'writing' when enlarged I believe is "MAX DIA(meter)" (can't read the dimension) .

Thanks L.A.B. Will standard cb750 cush drive, speedo drive, brake disks etc. all fit these wheels then?

I've never seen any factory honda with those type wheels, even the factory endurance racers of the 1970's used aftermarket wheels.
