    3 piece Hayashi Streets?



    Anyone ever seen them in 3 piece before? I'm thinking of picking these up, but I was just wondering if they were rebarreled? The seller says they were manufactured before they switched the style to one piece wheels.

    I've google'd but I can't seem to find anything about 3 piece Streets.

    without blowing my own horn, I sat down and read through a fair few japanese sites a couple of years ago when I bought what I thought were some Hayashis - then discovered that they were copies.
    Hayashis themselves are probably copies of the Campagnolo wheel found on the DeTomaso Mangusta.
    In short, no, I've never seen a three piece wheel made by Hayashi BUT if there is one thing I've learnt from tinkering on old cars, never ever say never.

    If you were in Australia I'd almost ask the question - are they CSA copies.

    In another picture they have the Hayashi Racing logo imprinted into the face of the wheel where Streets normally have the logo... Gotta run to work though, so I can't pull up the picture.

    To machine out the faces and new barrels would cost way more than $1200 bucks. I'm just saying.

    Still cheaper than new Hayashi Streets. :P

    If you found some cheap ones in a crap offset/width and re-barreled them... I'm just saying... :wink:

    In my (many) years of car enthusiasm, I have never seen a set of 3-piece Streets.

    What doesn't make sense to me is the fact that any two/three piece rim of the era would be using FAR LESS bolts to secure the pieces together. The amount used on those looks more similar to a BBS wheel or equivalent relatively modern 3-piece.

    I'm entirely dubious until someone can show me a brochure or other definitive documentation that proves otherwise.
