As a new member of this forum I have only just seen this thread. It would be a shame if these rings could not be reproduced again as I need one and I don't even have an MT yet!
Thing is, some time ago while casting an eye over an MT at a show I noticed that a good few components were identical to those on my Moto Morini Camel. The rear spoke ring being just one of them. They also used the same wheel in the Kanguro drum brake models. I bet there must be a few more bikes that used these Grimeca (I think) wheels?
I'd buy one anyway! (at least one as I have a spare wheel for my Morini Camel and seem to have become a serial Morini rebuilder)

Wait until you've bought an MT, that's when the hoarding really becomes a problem.

I'd love to Iinvest in more spoke rings but I can't justify the huge cost for them to sit on the shelf for 5 years and then sell them for less than I had them made for!! When it makes good business sense I'll do them again until then I'll just stick to the engines and wiring looms for now.. Unless we find a member with a cnc shop and lots of free off cuts the rear wheels are doomed to salt and corrosion!
