My ES2 wheel rebuild

Posted by george_roland at December 04. 2018

The wheels have been previously dismantled and are now ready for re-assembly, what would be the

off-set of the hubs ?

kind regards

George Roland.

I think the RGM website also has the offsets?  https://www.rgmnorton.co.uk/csi/1245184/f/pdf/wheel_offsets.pdf

Doesn't include plunger as far as I can see......

I presumed they were the half width hubs, but I’m no expert!!

No, they're symmetrical "cotton reel" type but different dimensions to the rigid ones.

I've just popped down to the garage and measured mine and on the speedo side the offset is 1.977" (probably a round 2") from the speedo driving boss to the edge of the wheel rim.

Thank you very much for that , is the off-set only on the front wheel ?

That's the back wheel as it's quite different to the front. I think the pdf from RGM has the single sided front wheel in it.

I have just completed a Plunger front wheel rebuild. I purchased the rim and spokes from a reputable company as the drum is a half-width job that needs two separate spoke lengths. Because the spokes were exactly correct, the task was very straight forward and I ended up with an almost concentric rim that sat centrally between the forks.

As far as I know, except for a few specially built racers, all of the frames using Roadholder forks had a centrally positioned front wheel with no off-set.
