The mysteries of the Gold Wheel.

When I bought the bunch of vintage wheels I made the assumption that the gold wheel was an 18 incher? WRONG. Turns out it is a 17 incher. I was told it was from a DR250.

I know TS250Xs of that era had 17s on the back, as I used to own one.

I was a bit depressed at first, but then it turns that it fits my spare front hub pretty well with the 142mm x 4mm spokes I had sourced a while back! So it’s a good score!

I just need to hit the rim with Mister Muscle (caustic oven cleaner) to remove the hideous gold anodizing.
