Custom Wheel Spinning is now doing the work for Kosman.
$755.00 for one wheel for an FJ1200.....Yikes!

Yikes is right, the last I heard it was $575 and I thought that was expensive, after hearing that
My Kosman widened 1100F rear rim is now for sale for $700. :idea:

How wide do you want to go?
The cheaper way would be to find a different wheel that will fit the bill. there are plenty out there that can be adapted to a CBX.
Personally, I never liked the ugly weld seam on a widened wheel.

To each his own, I always thought the bead Kosman laid down to be an art form, I will admit at the prices they want now you could actually go out and buy a piece of art. :laughing-lettersrofl:

I like the look as well.
Melchiro has had 3 or 4 done including one from an '80 but it was a couple years ago when Kosman was doing them.

Senna,try these guys they are in Germany.
They do wheels for the metric cruiser crowd.
