Gedday from Australia. My first post here. I'm modifying my '96 XV750 into a Cafe Racer, I'm trying to get a Manx TT 60's look. I was wanting a 17" rear wheel so I took a punt on the BT1100 wheel. It is a close fit but about 10mm offset. I'm not sure if some machining on both surfaces will be possible to achieve a reasonable outcome, so before i spend to much time thinking about it I was wondering if anyone else in the Virago community has attempted such an odd mod?

I was on the Virago Tech forum, but I appear to be locked out of it for some reason and searching about I found this place...

Thanks in advance
