Austrian Lightweight Joins The Campaign

Got hold of this KTM rear hub to hold up the arse end on Skankweasel. The hub and brake plate are made of magnesium, the rim is a WM3 x 18" Akront "Green Label" the whole wheel as seen here minus the spindle comes in at 7.05 kg, or 
15 1/2  lbs in old money.

The brake anchor position may take some thinking about to get the operating pivot 'round to a more conventional position, but that ain't a show stopper.
