Would any 1800 Rotor and Caliper and work with any 1800 rear Wheel? I am having the hardest time getting stuff together to do a foots mod...

Also anyone selling any of the needed parts im listening... Not concerned with scratches either as I am planning on powder coating the wheels black. Chrome is too expensive to maintain...

Rear wheel will fit a 1300 with a hick's modified rotor (slapjack mod) or an 1800 caliper (foots mod).

But then you're left with a set of mismatched wheels. If anyone knows a way to mod a 1800 front wheel (2 rotors) to fit a 1300 (single rotor), let me know and I'll jump on this deal myself -- I'd love to have the F wheels on my 1300c ...

I have spoke rims at the moment, so i am trying to find a 1300 front rim and 1800 rear rim of the same style and its posing a challenge... If i Could go 1800 Wheels all around it would be nice, i wouldnt mind the extra braking power either. :hmm2:

If you want to stick with the spokes, you could track down an 1800s rear wheel and use your stock front wheel. I think the spoke pattern is basically the same, but I'm not sure how much bigger the 1800s rear wheel is as compared to the 1300s rear wheel...

Most people use the rear wheel off an 1800 n, c, or t for a foots mod, since it matches the front wheel on a 1300c.

F wheels are unique to the 1800, however.

I have foots parts and rotors.

Spokes too. If you want F's you can use the rear on your 1300 but we'd have to cut an F front for the 1300. Its all very doable.
