Wheels with Tapered Roller Star Hub and Classic Profiled Semi-Drop Center Rim

Wheels with Tapered Roller Star Hub and Classic Profiled Semi-Drop Center Rim

If you often ride your classic scooter on long distances you might prefer wheels with modern, low maintenance bearings. Hence these complete, ready-to-install wheel assemblies work as stock replacements but feature an upgraded hub with modern tapered roller wheel bearings. To add to the authentic look the rims have the correct design and a Kelsey-Hayes (KHW) rim stamping on the inside. The hubs accept all stock drum brakes.

Some brake drums require a spacer (front W&W 27-748, rear 27-746) with these hubs to prevent them from touching the hub’s spoke rim.
