Not directly. But I saw one person do it on Craigslist. I saved the pictures and I got some information by email before the posting disappeared. The back wheel is the same size, the front wheel is slightly narrower, same front tire, rotor on same side. Fitting the back wheel should be a little bit easier, resizing the bearings, correct spacing and mounting the rear rotor and caliper. Yeah a little bit of engineering needs to be done.! I've done a few wheel swaps on other bikes. The process is pretty much the same with a a little bit of machining and measuring. What could go wrong? Ha! Oh and it helps to have a 3D printer to speed up prototyping.

Nice...3D printer. very nice.
I noticed from your esig flicker images that you 'quite' a collection of bikes.
I'm happy that little CB1 found a good home.

Congrats.

Yes, thanks!   My current collection is a custom Hawk GT, VFR800 (5th gen) and the CB-1.   A V2, V4 and I4.   My daily is the comfy VFR.

Here is one pic of the cb1 with cbr3 wheels.  I'm not a fan of 3 spoke wheels.  The 5 spokers look so much nicer, IMO.

I'm curious...........why?
Why go thru all that trouble to install CBR300 rims?

It's more about the fun.  I don't have to.  I have the bad tendency to just tinker.  Nothing will be irreversible.

I thought so.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who suffers from "CST Syndrome"........(Can't Stop Tinkering Syndrome).

it's an addiction.
it seems that when I have a bike all dialed in, set, everything is working fine....I find SOME excuse to wanna keep, well, "tinkering" with the darn thing.
I need medical treatment for this syndrome.....seriously.

enjoy the psychosis.

Yup, same mental condition! I don't think I've owned a bike stock for very long.   But i wont go too far with this bike tho.   There is a point of no return.  I don't want any mod to disable it for more than a couple weeks.  I built my my Hawk with advanced CST and it took more than 3 years!  This will not happen here.
