What options do I have for getting a rear mag without going to a 5.5" rim? Did they ever make an old style (5 spoke) Marchesini in a 5" width? Anyone have a used rear mag?

One option is a Marvic rear but that's a cool $1400! Ya-yikes!

Another option is getting an Aluminum Marchesini SM rear -- probably have to do the spacers on your own.

Sam,

You could try http://www.tawvehicle.com in CO. They are the importer of all Marchesini wheels here in the US and distribute to everyone else I believe. They do run some specials every once in awhile but they are still expensive as I am sure you know. Maybe one of their distributors can get you a better deal than going direct yourself.

From their fitment chart they only have 5.5 widths as well. I'd say try Fred at Yoyodyne but you've gone down that road.

Dymag?? Dunno if they even make them?

You could try calling Carrozerria (sp) here in So Cal. It doesn't look like from their website they make anything for an Aprilia but it never hurts to ask. Of course they make everything in forged Al but should be lighter than the stock rims. Here's their contact linky: http://www.forged-wheel.com/Contact.htm

The only other option would be to keep searching for something for another bike that is close and make some spacers - probably alot of work.

I had at one time placed an order with Harris Performance in the UK for some PVM Wheels. The turn around time was so long that I ended up cancelling the order.. That was over a year ago, so maybe they are faster now?

I've got these that may or may not work for you, not 5 spoke but really nice light race wheels set up for the Tz250. Not 5" wheels though, one is 5.25 and one is 5.5 made to run 160 GP slicks.

Me to. PVM kept promising to deliver in a couple of weeks. I waited a year for those wheels and nothing turned up. I god Dymags instead, but Dymag went bust last year so you can't get them anymore.

See here:http://www.csaperformancewheels.com/products/Dymag-Magnesium-5-Spoke-%28Rear%29.html

You can still get Dymags but 5.5" I believe is the narrowest available, still the 5.5 is listed as to suit the rs250.

Here in Italy a brand new Marvic pair of wheels would cost 1750€+VAT.
I don't think there are other options for our bike...

O well I'll keep watching for a used rear Marvic. Not forking out $1400 for a new one.
