Wheel w/tires and tube weights!
These are off my 1999 Nighthawk 250- yes, I finally sold the REBEL that I only inherited and found the NIghthawk that I've wanted. Been wondering IF the EUROPEAN bikes that came w/Mag wheels were lighter than our seemingly heavy spoke steel wheels- w/TUBE tires. I had them off for new rubber, so the front with 90/90/18 tire and tube- no brake hub/shoes weighted 22 lbs, the rear w/sprocket, tire/tube, no brake hub was 29. So 51 llbs of my bike is in these tires/wheels/sprocket. Anyone guess what the Euro mag wheels w/similar tires (no tubes!) weight?
On a Rebel related note, my guess is the Rebels rims are wider- thus heavier, and the tires are probably a bit larger too- so my guess for the Rebel would be in the 53- 58 lb range for the two tires/wheels.
