Does anyone know where to buy a vented rear drum for the 18 inch spoked rear wheel like on punkskalar's bike? I NEED one of these. Please let me know if you have one or if you can steer me in the right direction. Thanks.

I got mine from a 1981 XS650, drilled a bunch of holes in it, hit it with some polish and it was done... Not too hard to do.... Can't buy it all, sometimes we just have to make it.... Let me know if you want me to make one for ya....

I thought there was a vented one somewhere between 70-72 somewhere but the look of yours is what I'm after. Are the holes in yours just wide open? Any kind of screen or mesh or anything behind it?

Just open, no screen... Lots of miles, no problems...

Good to hear. Tell your bike to stop haunting me. Seriously.

'70 and '71 had dual leading shoe front drum brakes with an air scoop that had mesh. That may be what you are thinking of?

Hey man, you know these machines are, once they make up their mind to do something, there is no convincing them otherwise.

Apparently. If you do wind up parting that thing out let me know. Thanks for the help guys.
