Update on compability for aluminium HOR wheels on a BP8.
Rear wheel is a direct fit, sprocket and all ( I'm running GPV chain setup). Just needs a 1,5mm spacer on each side to line up properly.
Last night I tried to fit the front wheel to the GPV-Pro fork. The HOR wheel axle (brass) was too long for direct fit and the bearings too wide to shorten the axle , so I switched to GPV axle and bearings. They fit nicely in the wheel and rotors of the HOR. I had to widen the center hole of the wheel to 6,5mm to clear the axle (easy hand drill work) and shim the bearings 0.4mm out, each side, inside the rotors.
As I'm running foam tires, I also took off the big, square shaped integrated wheelweight, to get a level surface to glue my tire on.
Now i have indestructable wheels that run straight and looks great.
These mods should be great for any GPV-1 driver out there too.

Did you use a lathe to take the weight off, or did you cut/file it off?

As I don't have my lathe set up yet, I actually milled it off using a turntable (if that's the correct word). Anyway, it's a big laid down chuck where you fix the piece in the jaws and then crank it around, milling at the desired radius. It's not perfect or high finish but enough precision for a wheel. The incomplete lathe installation in my workshop is something I grief frequently but never seem to get around to do.
I'm so mad with myself....... (It's been years).

Rotary vice/turn table, I know what you mean. Swheels has my 7x10 lathe and 4x9 milling machine now. i really miss not having a little work area.

Though the lathe would have been too small to machine some rims in 5th scale with, a rotary vice on the milling machine would have worked out.

Smaller machines like this are great for 1.8th scale though.

Any pics of your bike currently?

Good thing the HOR upgrades are usable too!

But I have to admit, the ZH forks and rims fit the BP8, and they are very durable and easy to get.

I know but when you use a GPV-1 rtr or a HOR as a donor, buying ZH fork, hubs, wheels and transmission on top, is a lot of money.
I also wanted to tell all GPV drivers that worry about wheel availability, there's hope!
