GT750 Wheels

Alloy wheel rims and stainless steel spokes from Central Wheels

The front rims size is 19 x 2.15 36 Hole Morad TC and for the rear a 18 x 3.00 36 Hole Morad TC, slightly larger than standard size as I intend to have 100/90 tyre on the front and a 120/90 on the rear and the 120 is slightly too big for stock rim.
