I think I may be looking for a unicorn, unless someone here knows otherwise. I would like to find a K100 18" Y spoke rear wheel. Anyone know of one?

Some were made by welding on to 17 inch ones. Very very rare.

My K100 had one such wheel. I did not know for sure that it was not factory produced. Unfortunately, an unscrupulous fabricator made my K100 disappear.

Search the forum's search engine for more info about the Kosman Racing Y-Spoke wheel. They were made for Luftmeister in the late 1980s/early '90s. I sold mine to a member from NYC a coupla years back.

Mine must have been a Kosman also, as it was also widened.

That is what I meant to convey, that they were made by (now-defunct, California-based) Kosman Specialties. I know of no one else doing that mod, and that they were all initially 17" rims enlarged and widened to 18" to fit the then in vogue 160/60ZR18 tyre.
