Hey all, been absent a few years with other projects.

Not sure this has been discussed already but I brought up the subject in 2012. http://tw200forum.com/forum/performance-customization/4001-160-front-tire-3-print.html about the 36 spoke rear wheel option for our TW's...Well I can say the eagle has finally landed. High quality Takasago 36 spoke rims can finally be purchased state side. Suzuki 65311-13G00 - RIM, REAR WHEEL (14M/CXMT4.50 : MRCycles $187.63

Rear Van Van Rim Info: It is manufactured in Japan by Takasago (Excel)
RK EXCEL j14m/cxmt 4.50DOT 1008
Suzuki part 65311-13G00
Looks like Dunlop K180 was original equipment tire (I think they used these high quality Dunlops for Speedway and dirt track racing)

Why 36 spokes?
Well for one it's stronger, and may help keep the rear wheel true.
But more importantly it could open up more custom/alternative rear hub options.
I believe the van hub is alloy Suzuki 64110-13G00 - HUB, REAR WHEEL : MRCycles so maybe that could be adapted?

and the tire looks like a k180

Finally we have a different option than the D.I.D rim

The part wasn't available in 2015....he would have had to order it from Europe. Now it's available at nearest parts counter. XTW600 cush drive I will make.

Will also make a cheap alternative to buying supermoto wheels for alot of bikes. Not quite supermoto but the 203 204 are pretty awesome road tires.
