Hubless Custom Motorcycle
This amazing looking custom bike runs on the hubless wheels(spokeless wheels)and was designed by the guys at Amen Design.
Inspired by Franco Sbarro's hubless wheels. Hubless wheels work by fixing the rotating parts (brake ring, bearings, hubless rim) onto the outer side of a non-rotating inner ring that attaches to the motorcycle's swingarm or forks.
Advantages include decreased unsprung weight, reduced structural stress (no spokes to transmit forces through), increased braking leverage, more accurate steering, reduced vibration and a lower center of gravity.
Check this bike in motion. Looks so great! A guaranteed head-turner....
