    Todd did you ever get the BST Carbon wheels built?
    I noticed they have dropped prices on their website saying starting from $3000 now..

    Currently, AFAIK, I have the only BST carbon fibre wheel shod Guzzi on the planet, aside from a bloke in Tassie with a carbon fibre front wheel off a Ducati mounted on his Norge.

    I can tell you from experience, removing 8.7kg of rotating and unsprung mass from my stock Bellagio wheels, has resulted in a long wheelbase 200kg (wet weight) Guzzi that turns as quick and with the same ease, as a Triumph 675R Street Triple.

    I got unused 2nd hand BST wheels for AUD$3k, spent another 5k on design, development and creation of bits to adapt the wheels from chain to shaft drive fitment. That 5k was cheap at 100 hours @ $40/hr. plus various billet alloy, 4340 & K138 etc.

    I could supply you with the necessary bits, current exchange rates favour the USD, should cost you less than 3K
