Official 2018 Daytona Bike Week Build: Ridewright 40-Spoke Motorcycle Wheels
When it came time to decide what wheels we wanted to run on the Official Motorcycle of Bike Week 2018, the choice wasn’t that difficult. Ridewright makes some of the sharpest spoked wheels in the business. And we definitely wanted to run spokes on the custom Dyna street tracker. Sure, the stock 2010 Harley Super Glide that serves as the base platform already ran spoked wheels, but they don’t offer near the quality and style of the Ridewright 40-Spoke Motorcycle Wheels.
A big reason we’re happy to work with Ridewright is it’s an American company that’s keenly aware of the history of “wheelwrights” and holds itself to high standards. The custom wheel maker was founded in California in 1999 with the goal of making the “most durable spoked wheel for Harley-Davidsons.” The launching of the Fat 50 spoke wheel thrust them into the industry spotlight while their Modular Hub Ends solidified their presence in the marketplace. The quality of their wheels and the premiere level of customization they offer helps set them apart.
In the case of Ridewright’s 40-Spoke Wheels buyers have the option to upgrade the hoop, spokes, ABS bearings, add a tubeless seal, and choose from eight different rim, hub and nips colors. There’s several different colored spokes to choose from. If you’re looking for something even more unique check out their Color, Finishes & Treatment page because Ridewright will have it custom-colored by either Tiger Coatings or Prismatic Colors.
For the Official Motorcycle of Bike Week 2018 we went with gloss black rim on the Ridewright 40-Spoke Wheels which makes the polished spokes stand out even more. The back wheel in particular is more prominently displayed thanks to the trimmed-down Saddlemen’s Eliminator tracker tail section. The new EBC wave rotors look pretty sharp paired to the fresh Ridewrights, too.
We can’t thank George Stinsman of Chaos Cycle and his son Devin enough for tackling this project head-on. As if they didn’t already have their plate full, they graciously accepted the task of building this year’s giveaway bike. That’s right, this bike is up for grabs in the raffle being conducted by the Daytona Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce. Check out officialbikeweek.com for the official rules and to buy tickets. A maximum of 4,500 tickets will be sold. The bike is currently on display at the J&P Superstore at Bruce Rossmeyer’s Destination Daytona if you’d like to check it out. The drawing will be held at Riverfront Park on Beach Street in Daytona Beach March 17, so why not grab a couple tickets and stuff them in somebody’s stocking for Christmas? Could make them the happiest person around when March rolls around!
