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 black 18” rims have the correct design and a Kelsey-Hayes (KHW) rim stamping. The hubs accept all stock drum brakes.

Attention! Possible assembly fault and brake drum failure.

Some brake drum/wheel hub combinations require one or more spacer shims (front W&W 27-748, rear 27-746) to prevent them from touching the hub’s spoke rim. The brake drum must not touch the hub’s spoke flange. This might result in the drum breaking when tightening lug bolts.
