Hi,
Did anyone of you change OEM alloy wheels to spoked rims? Front wheel is a problem - 17x3.00. Third party rims (Excel, Kineo, etc,) starts from 17x3.50. V7 front wheel is that size as well. Should I expect problems?
Best regards,
Sławek

Curious as to why you would want to(?), but otherwise, the 2009+ V7 spoked wheels are a direct swap. 18" front, 17" rear. If you are lacing your own, you would have to do 3.5" x 17" front and rear, as the stock swing arm doesn't support anything wider for the rear rim. I did this combo on my Racer with Kineos; https://gtmotocycles.com/products/kineo-tubeless-spoked-wheels

I just hate the shape - aesthetics:) I would like slowly go to scrambler or dual-sport look. People are generally converting Nevadas not Brevas, describing issues they have to solve. If you check unlimited Internet the most Guzzi scramblers or cafe racers are made from Nevada. I love my Breva but small changes are required. It was "occasion" from cousin. I ride spoked-rim Stelvio as well. I know that Kineo will double price of the bike. So I will try to find V7 wheels as an option.
Other case example:

Easiest is the 2009-2012 V7 rims.
Guareschi Guzzi built one using the older V65TT forks and wheel hubs (19” front), pic below. If you want that look, purchase the V7 hubs new and lace your own.

Thanks for your help. Idea to use original hub only was used by guy making this modification. lessardineries.fr/2017/08/25/transformation-scrambler-dune-moto-guzzi/
