Hi Knut,mdt-son said:What's wrong - is the rim bent or has one of the spokes suffered a rupture? You may discuss with an alloy rim specialist - it's incredible what they are able to do to salvage a damaged rim / wheel.
The wheel is fractured in a couple of spokes. Might not be obvious from the previous pics. Have a look at this:
There are cracks in some of the other spokes as well. Going to talk to my bro who's a specialist at welding aluminium and see if he can do anything. Think it's way too far gone though.
I've got the receipt for the wheels kicking around somewhere. Seems they were brought into Aussie as generics and could then be machined as either Honda4, Kwaka9 or Commando. There weren't any other bikes worth riding in them days!
