Can I put alloy wheels on 2003 Volusia VL800 SE

Postby sweetrider63 » November 19th, 2012, 9:45 pm

Looks like I need to replace my back wheel (hub/rim and spokes).

Was wondering if I can actually change the front and rear wheels to alloy wheels and not have to contend with spokes anymore. Any advice?

The cheapest way out is to replace them with the wheels off a C50C which are a direct bolt up (different spacers I think), that will likely cost you close to $1500 if you can find them. Anything else will likely cost you $2500+.

Personally I don't think it is worth it unless you are spending $10s of thousands and going for a custom bike which I don't think I would base on a VL800....
