Need Brakes, Help Identifying Wheels

William Rengel /

Hey guys, my moped could use some new brakes and need help identifying these wheels so I can order the right brake shoes. Extra points for a Treatland link. Thanks.

Those are almost the sexiest wheels alive from the old Tomos A3 Golden bullet. They carry the 90mm Tomos shoes.

Looks like an Italian application. You need to remove shoes anyways so once they are off they should be easy to identify on treats website. Drum size is important. I cant tell if those are 80 or 90 millimeter diameter. Measure the inside of drum with calipers.

And honestly those old pads dont look that bad. Are they contaminated with oil or grease? Is the drum worn out past specs? (edited)

Definitely the old Tomos wheels.

I dont doubt that. They look like they would work on an Italian stallion.

Sweet! You have some of the cleanest stock bikes I've seen. I'm going to pm you because I don't want to ruin anyone's thread. People do it to me and I don't like it so I won't do it to anyone.

Agreed.

Thanks for everyone's help. I was surprised to see so much meat on the pads as well, but they must be contaminated, cause they just don't have any bite. I will measure the drum to make sure its in spec. They are not on an Italian stallion or a Tomos, but rather a Dutch/French hybrid:
