    hi all i,m new to the forum .was wanting to know about rear wheel swap using gl 1000 rear spoked 15inch wheel and drive unit ,i want the wheel because i can put a car tyre on for sidecar use, if it can be done i will also be modifying the front to use gl 1000 leading link forks and a front spoked wheel to match

    FYI, the early ('75-'77) spoked GL1000 rear wheel is 17", but I don't think the hubs match up in any case.

    Someone here has done it but it isn't worth it.



    Your best option of saving time and fabrication is doing it this way.

    putting a gl1000 spoked wheel on a 500 frame and swing arm can be done



    the issue is if you want to deal with the following



    modding the final drive



    making a new dust ring for the final drive



    mounting the rear master cylinder and fabricating linkage



    fabricating a caliper mount



    make a brake line



    to get the wheel on and off i remove the wheel with the final drive and then pull the final drive off the wheel no big deal



    now it does give you some honking great brakes and a awesome rear brake



    here is what a gl 1000 front end and rear wheel looks like on a cx 500

    front end looks easy enough but the rear is alot of work to get the advantage of a 15 inch rear wheel .only wanted to put the rear goldwing wheel on because it had been made to 15 inch for car tyre. can cx wheels be converted to spokes ?

    there never was a 15 inch rear wheel on a goldwing



    when i darkside a goldwing (use a car tire) i ;ace a 16 inch harley rim onto the goldwing hub then use a 16 inch car tire\



    its easier to do on a lester mag then its tubless



    if you search darksiding a goldwing you will find lots about it

    Hey Murry,

    no sorry the swing arm is so narrow that on most of my builds i toss it and use something else



    most of the time a modded gl650 swingarm or cx 650



    or complete custom one



    so i have never darksided a cx500 with a stock swing arm
