Suffering Succotash... 1982 GL1100 front wheel.
Many of you that have been following my FB feed know that I have a 1982 GL1100 I have been doing a 'lo tech' restoration on. This bike has been on the stand for four years... and has gone through two floods of my home. Just a week ago or so I purchased two Kenda Kruz tires for my project bike... named Scruffy.
This bike has not been ridden in 12 years... but it has a new single Weber the motor runs and almost every seal, bearing and rubber part has already been replaced or I have the part on hand. (above the water line)
I have also purchased a new HF tire mounting machine... and yesterday I started working on mounting the rear tire. I made the mistake of leaving the front wheel... (old tire) outside last night and some sorry son of a biscuit eater stole it... along with the axle... and the brake rotors...
So... I know that 1100's were sort of a mixed bag of front wheels. I see different wheels and especially different rotors all through the 1100 line. It is time for me to start learning everything I can about the different sorts of wheels, rotors and calipers that were used on the 1100's... so I can bee informed about what to purchase online...
the wheel I lost looked like this: (_ see image)
It had the Comstar wheel and the "deep dish" brake rotors... any advice about what parts will fit my bike would be greatly appreciated.
