Pit Bike Wheels and tyres sets
« on: 07 November 2019, 04:07:56 pm »
I seem to remember someone, somewhere bought some 17" pit bike wheels with tyres for £27 each.
Am I correct?
If I am, does anyone know where I get them from?
Thanks in anticipation......

I bought some wheels from one of the companies selling pit bikes and also sets of front and rear wheels.  They'd broken up a few sets to send out rear wheels to people who had bought pit bikes and broken their rear wheels and so had a few front wheels left over.  I think it was pitbikeparts.co.uk, but can't remember at the moment - but presumably you could call any of the suppliers selling sets of wheels - I phoned a few before I had any luck and I suspect it'll just depend on their stock at the time.  I got my original set of wheels from funbikes but they had knobbly tyres and inner tubes and cost a lot more.  I did try getting just the front wheels from a manufacturer in via Alibaba but failed.  Good luck.

Thanks .  Had a look at your recommended site .  Would that be the "Steel Front 17" axis 15 mm you use ?  Part number 0410300200114

Buy your wheels in the UK. You absolutely should ensure that the outside diameter of the bearing is 35 mm. If there is SDG in the description you are usually OK, but check before buying. Reason is that the 35 mm OD bearing has more options for changing to a bigger ID than 37 mm ones.
FWIW I have been contacted by a person who collected a lot of bits to build (including wheels) and is selling everything as he is building/restoring an Austin 7 full size special. These have now been acquired by one of our members.

Rhys is absolutely right about bearing size. However the last time I looked 17" pit bike wheels were becoming scarce in the uk and had risen in price, due I presume to the number of enquiries. I understand that shipping costs have also risen sharply now, due to covid19! Gemini Karts are struggling to get hold of any from overseas and if successful will be months away, with no guarantee of competitive cost.
If the wheels from France are 35 OD, it seems a good option.
Has anybody found a source in the UK recently?
