Speed Star MK.2

The second wheel from Speed Star was the MK.2 – a four-spoke wheel which would utilize a more conventional three-piece construction, compared to the MK.1.  The original wheel had a twenty-five-year long production run but was revived again in the new century after it’s death in 1996.

Over time, the wheel stayed true to its original form.  Slight differences in ribs and design exist on the back of wheel centers between various diameters.  Markings did change slightly over the years, with the earliest wheels showing no JWL/VIA markings.  Early wheels also require a shank still wheel nut.  All use backward mounted “スピードスター” signature assembly bolts though.

Available colors were silver, gold, orange, red, and black.

With some huge widths available, and classic design from what is considered by many to be THE Kyusha Wheel manufacturer, the MK.2 is a high ranking wheel, that is still relatively attainable given its long production run and popularity.
