Streetmate and revival had wider rear tires and hubs. Thus, dished front sprocket.

Using non tomos wheels on a streetmate/revival swingarm will require careful thought to address:

0)shock length and alignment

1)chain length, alignment, and "is some part of the frame gonna be in the way?"

2) axle length

3)Rear hub brake stop

4)tire width to clear chain and frame

5) sprocket teeth for final drive ratio

6) aligning the rear wheel center to the frame center

7) I'm sure theres more.

Feasible? Yes

Easy? no, custom spacers will be required on feckin everything.

That being said, I've done it many times. I put tomos sprint A55 wheels on my puch magnum, streetmate rear wheel on a morini frame and a tomos sprint frame, Yamaha towny wheel on General forks. Blah blah blah.

A55 Tomos mags have one of the largest brake drums. Great for stopping. (edited)
