I picked up a Passport for a good price several weeks ago and started going over it. It needs tires, tubes, rim strips, headlight and tail light bulbs, battery, starter solenoid, neutral switch, fork lock, ignition switch, front fender, front springs, and there's a hole in the head near the exhaust, the front rim is bent.
I had picked up some Trail 90 rims last fall for yet another project for a good price and the rims look to be the same, so I thought I would try to swap them. The Speedo gear under the brake plate would need tweaking, but when I went to install the wheel, I discovered that the axle bolt on the new rim was larger.
IF the press-in bearings on both rims could be swapped I could save tracking down a front rim on eBay or a pair of rims from an Asian country.
Any idea how to tell if the rims are identical and the bearings can be swapped? And, of course, I could just buy C70 bearings and try it...
