Krauser cast wheels

Post by rsc6613 »

Did Krauser make a cast alloy wheelset for the R90S? I have acquired a R90S basket case project and I am trying to identify the wheels it came with. They look like Lester wheels, but they do not carry Lester branding and I believe Lester wheels all have 7 spokes. Mine have 6 spokes and have a double K (one backwards & one forwards) logo. I’ve searched everywhere and cannot find any images or info on Krauser wheels.

They might be Morris mag wheels which were an aftermarket upgrade popular in the mid 70's. The tell tail is the rear disc brake rotor. I have a couple sets of the in the loft so when I get out to the shop I'll take a look and see if either of mine have the two "k"s, I will also look to see if they have 6 or 7 spokes. Did you also get a rear disc brake caliper and master cylinder?

The previous owner was planning a resto-mod build. He machined a custom K100 rear caliper holder, stay rod, master cylinder bracket on the frame and rearsets with linkage.

For what it's worth I can confirm that my Lester wheels have seven spokes.

I also found a picture of an old Krauser logo that was two Ks, back to back w/ a horizontal arrow going through the middle of them.
