Exclusive. World’s First 30” Hubless Motorcycle Wheel. With Integral 29” Brake Rotor.

hubless1hubless2hubless3A new twist (pun intended) for the big wheel lovers. After “who is going to make it taller”, the industry is going in the direction of “who is going to make it invisible?” Kind of…

Engineered and machined in Toronto, Canada by Steve Schuller of Schuller Cyclewerks, this 30” hubless wheel will be fitted on a very special project curently being built in Wisconsin by Ballistic Cycles. The wheel is machined from billet 6061-T6 aluminum with integral 29″ diameter brake rotor made from heat treated 420 stainless steel. Dealers will be able to check out this 30″ hubless wheel/29″ rotor at the Ballistic Cycles booth during the Cincinnati V-Twin Expo (February 8-9)

    Didn’t Billy Lane do this ten+ years ago? On the rear drive wheel no less?

    hey cyril.

    do you ever ask yourself why you bother to post up things w all the negative comments that get posted?

    im sure alot of time went into that wheel and the build will be great. Ballistic does great work.

  12. 12 GD Jan 30th, 2014 at 4:06 pm

    Yes and I think Billy patented it

  13. 13 Jr Jan 30th, 2014 at 4:29 pm

    Yes billy did and he is doing a new one right now

    The Orbital wheel was invented in 1989 by franco Sbarro who built 3 motorcycles with both wheels being hubless on each of them. All the patents belong now to Mottas Vistaholding with agreement of Franco Sbarro. Billy Lane just copied, doesn’t deny it and can’t patent anything. Many others did it. This featured 30″ wheel is just the first of this size. (GD, learn your mc invention history)

    There is no market for the hubless wheel because of many issues with it. Just to draw attention in bike shows.

    Mike Brown built a hubless Bike back in the 90’s Rear and front

    Didn’t Joey Perse build that rear wheel for Billy?

  18. 18 Woody Jan 30th, 2014 at 9:03 pm

    It’s for fun, lay back and enjoy it. It’s no worse than fronts done by Sugar Bear (which are just the coolest thing ever, IMHO) 😉

    Saw it at at the north American International Super show in Toronto, steve is a very intelligent person and even though it is not my style it was very impressive

    Yes, i agree
    it’s not my cup of tea, nor will anything like it, but that no reason to put it down
    The market will sort itself out like always & will see if it affects resale value

    What happens once water/grit/road grime gets inside the works?

  23. 23 BCinSoCal Feb 3rd, 2014 at 7:02 pm

    Who will be the first to build a bagger with 30″ hub less wheels front and rear? Wouldn’t be any more lame than some of the stuff out there now !
