I would have thought so. If they can take impacts from jumps they should be ok. Just dont do jumps with the iron head?


They do dirt drags in aussie, and a lot of the bikes are harleys with dirt bike rims and wheels.

I reckon they will be plenty strong enough mate, when stuff is designed there is a strength factor built into the part, meaning it is normally 2 or 3 times stronger than it needs to be. Just think of what a motard does around the track at Paeroa compared to what you'll be doing.

How hard would it be to just modify to bolt two rotors on and go from there?

The photos of the hubs on the net have tabs for the disks.
