Volkswagen Motorcycle Wheel Adapter

Fabrication Design

This was an ambitious project to create an adapter for a 1970′s CB750 Honda sprocket to mount to a VW car wheel. The motorcycle uses VW wheels and disc brakes and also has a sidecar mounted. The aluminum adapter mounts in between the sprocket and wheel and bolts to the brake rotor on the inside. The sprocket mounts to holes drilled in the adapter and tapped with helicoils in place. The adapter is also bored for bearings to mount to the CB750 axle.
