R60/7 1977 Wheel Rebuild

Postby TonyH » Wed May 03, 2017 9:21 am

Hi, I have a 1977 R60/7 which is in bits (that's the way I bought it) and I have to have the wheels rebuilt, however I need to provide the local wheel builder with the hub offset dimensions
I've googled this but no joy, no specific details for this bike
It has spoke wheels and a single front disc break
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated
Cheers Tony

Hi Tony,

See if you can glean any info from Snowbum's article:

R1100RT 1996.

I think Stemler in Germany sell the setting plates for most of the models.

They've been building wheels for decades - if they don't know they'll know someone who does.
