sorry smeg

No, no, come on it wouldn't be that easy! :cool:
The idea is the same though ;)
The bike is an on/off, but more off than the GS!
Everybody knows the big beemers have them now, but there was one bike that had them a few years earlier.
Hint: it was in 1985 and these wheels were used only on this specific bike and they looked awsome!

Not Moto Guzzi and not the RZ either.
The RZ had cast wheels, we re talking about tubeless tyres on normal spoked wheels.

hint: It's a Honda!
come on guys!

the answer is..

OK guys, since noone tried hard enough, I 'll give the answer.
It seems that the trivia forum is not really active :(

I wonder if I should go on creating more of these trivia... :confused:

Anyway, the answer is:
1985 Honda XL600LM, it was a rare bike, but not that rare :rolleyes:

Here is a picture, look at the rims, they have a 'lip' at the centre on which the spokes are attached, whereas the BMWs that followed a few years later have a different arrangement as the spokes are attached to the edge of the rim :

Hi Aris,

That was interesting. I tried for several hours to find the answer and it was fun looking.

Please keep up the trivia questions.

Thanks...
