Probably a stupid question but here goes? Will the spoked wheels from a c800 fit straight onto an m800? Converting mine to a hard-tail bobber and think the wire wheels will look better

Seriously, I would really like the c800c wheels.

C800 to M800 would not be a straight swap, the rear will change straight over but the front won't.
The front will require modificarion to the front brake setup and there will at least an issue with wheel spacing, both due to the different fork setup.
However I would also happily swap out my chrome spokes for a mag set if anyone was willing to go for it!

Martin I will find out all the in's and out's of what is required for a wheel swap, although you will have to bear with me for a while as I have only ever found one guy who has ever done it from an M to a C and vice versa. As I have already said there are issues but I know they can be gotten over

Ok Dave, thanks. No worries from my end I have a friend who is a custom builder so will help with the front although at a later date I may be putting longer forks or a springer front end on anyway. Or if wanted could swap the front end with the wheels, then it would be easy?
