I've had no luck finding any info on these wheels... Want to use them in a build. The bike designers haven't returned my emails either. Anybody recognize them?http://img.tapatalk.com/4c5b074a-401d-fea9.jpg

Not positive, but I think they're Marchesini wheels.

I'm almost positive those wheels are just a photoshop composite. This bike has been talked about a ton. If you look at the wheel there is no rotor for the brake or sprocket for the chain. That bike was "created" for a design comp but isn't rideable.

BMW ran that design on their R65 models in the 80's .

Doesn't PM do something similar for flat trackers?

They're the one I'm thinking of, but the PM wheels have 7 spokes, the ones above 8. I'm tending to concur with the CGI idear.

PM's are the closest I've seen, but a bit less sleek in an unexplainable way. Marchesinis are beautiful in their own right.

I would've chalked it up to CGI earlier if I hadn't seen SO many pictures from different sources with these wheels. Hell, it probably is CG. I'm sure I'm not the only one who spent a couple hours on google images when this bike was revealed. I figure if the good people here don't know, nobody does.

Looks close to marchies, but I'm pretty sure those are Carrozzeria. Both are very good, but you are going to spend a few grand easily on them. Not cheap at all.
