Hiro V1-R

R for reverse.  The V1-R used a slightly larger centre disk and reverse mounted shells for larger 15 and 16″ diameters versus the V-1.  With now thirty years passed since release, some V-1’s and V1-R’s have had center caps and disk plates swapped around, and sometimes confuse which model is which.  The V1-R is easily identifiable by a raised edge on the tops of the spoke blades that carry past wheel assembly bolts right to the edge of the centre section.

The V1-R came in gold, silver and white colours, with optional “chrome” highlights, and optional Electron locking centre caps.  A limited “Black Version” (year unknown) came equipped with both options.

Like the V-1, there is an extreme demand for this wheel, and it often fetches high dollars.
