Considering the seller is on my doorstep, I'm surprised I ain't seen that riding round.

In fairness, would you ride that around? A proper job from a factory he says...hope the factory burns to the ground soon...By the way what happens to all the back wheels from trike donor bikes? Here in Ireland you often see Travellers on two wheeled horse drawn carts or Sulkies as they're called. The wheels seem to invariably come from lightweight motorcycles which is why when I started collecting scrap CD 175's in the 80s there were never any decent wheels around.

Rear wheels from trikes?
One of them is now sitting in my garage waiting for the warmer weather and my day off (shift pattern) to coincide.

I rang up a bloke on Ebay (advertising a Cali 3 trike which he had converted himself) and asked him about the surplus wheel.
Drove to Hampshire the next day and paid cash.
£200 for the wheel and £50 for the caliper and bevel box.
Good deal all around! 8-)

The 5 bolt (disc fixing to the hub) are incredibly rare.
Rocking-horse-poo is much easier to find!

The dishing on the more common 6 bolt version is different, I bought a full set on Ebay but there was no way they were ever going to fit my forks. (Already gone to a new home, some time ago.)
Just being old doesn't make it a "Classic."

Aaaah! Nostalgia is not what it used to be!
