G'day

Just got word from Antique tyres that the tyres are due in Australia on 10/5/12. Will keep you informed as news comes to hand.

Cheers

Thanks for that 3legsThink I am on that list. Also think I found a 15'' wheel that Antique Tyres supply that is 4.5'' wide, that I think will look nice with a bit of workCush drive one side and an adaptor the other side for the disc rotor

Thread drift, but....

Hey Leigh,

I'd be very interested to find out what you are thinking of doing here? What's the 4 1/2" tyre?

Cheers,

Adrian

Yeah, Leigh.
I had a squiz at Antique Tyres webpages and could work out which wheel you're looking at.

More info.

Not that I need it. I've got a fantastic solid 15" rear wheel.
Can't think where I got it...

And thanks 3 legs. This did cross mymind the other day. But didn't stop for me to have a conversation with the thought.

Hi AdrianV, My plan is to use a 15'' x 4.5'' mag wheel, machine up a boss that will bolt to the surface where the wheel normally fits up to the hub of a car. I will use a cush setup in that hub as well. On the other side of the mag wheel (the side you see from the outside of a car) I will machine up an adaptor that fits in where the car wheel nuts fit and have a ring on it to bolt up the standard Triumph Tiger rear disc rotor. Sounds easy really but will probably take some time
