Hey guys,

Anybody have a complete front drum (I'll even take the whole wheel if it's in good shape) collecting dust that they want to get rid of? I'm thinking of ditching my disk.

Thanks.

If you're looking for an 18" 450 drum wheel, that's nearing Black Bomber territory and if you find a nice one, be prepared to pay dearly.

A cheaper option if you're dead set on it is to find a CL450 front wheel (19") and lace it yourself to an 18" rim. Still rare, but probably cheaper.

Be advised that disc brake forks may not work with a drum brake wheel as well unless you fabricate a backing plate stay and fish around for the correct axle spacers.

A 19" cl drum would be just fine with me. My 450 has a 19" front wheel and the forks look to be the same if the model years are similar. If that's not the case maybe I need to do a bit more research. Bomber forks and drums are not what I'm looking for! Way to expensive...
