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.

The rebel clone mag wheels I have are much heavier than the OEM spoked rims.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

They are Regal Raptor rims. See here: https://www.hondarebelforum.com/f78/...ms-116978.html

In addition to no tube, I find they don't loose air as quickly as tubes. For me, the best benefit is being able to make them almost puncture proof with the addition of Ride-On https://www.ride-on.com/, and it balances the tires as well. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q...1C17&FORM=VIRE
