Regal Raptor Alloy Rims

These alloy tubeless rims come off a Chinese made Rebel knockoff. To make them fit properly on a Honda Rebel, you need different front, rear, and brake drum spacers. Fortunately, member wjmrty has designed spacers for the ones he installed on his 250 and graciously provided me with the dimensions. Not sure how many folks may be out there contemplating this mod, but I'm in the process of getting estimates on a set for my Rebel. They will be made of aluminum. The more sets ordered, the cheaper the individual price. If anyone may want to purchase a set, respond to this thread and I'll let you know what the cost would be. Shipping will be extra.

The main reason I prefer tubeless rims is they are much less likely to develop flats once RideOn tire sealant has been added, and the tire sealant also balances them. Tire Sealant | Tire Protection System - Ride-On

And they look good too.

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

I could make those on my lathe pretty easily. Let me know if you're seeking additional bids.

I just googled the bike and saw it has dual disc brakes up front.

Hmm, fork lower/caliper/rotor from the other generation of Rebel and a T-connector...

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Mine came with a single disc on the right, requiring forks from a first generation Rebel.

Are we sourcing different companies? Every bike on that page has dual disc brakes up front.

Well, it says Regal Raptor right on the wheels. Maybe it's from an earlier model year? It only has disc mounting holes on the right side.
