Oi, it's been fun making this work and especially with the caliper some of yous have given me some great help. So thanks for that! A few months ago I was on Ebay looking at random junk like I do, and was just looking for "17 inch mag wheels" for my chopper. My rear brakes have never been the best, and was considering a disc brake rear and ditching the front in true chopper tradition. I found the BMW K100 and fell in love with the pattern of the wheel. Only 20 smackaroos and even had free shipping. The splines for the driveshaft were fucked which is why the price was so cheap, but there are tons of these wheels with bad splines on ebay. The bike is normally single side swing arm, and shaft driven. "But will it work? It's probably too wide" was that first thought. So with a little internet research found out the specs were 17x2.75 and well hot shit I was already running a 2.75 rear tire on that 2.5 five star wheel. So naturally I bought the goober and devised a plan.
