Steel tab specially manufactured as original to convert new wheels to the later type from chassis #72504. While primarily intended for new 'panzer' wheels from MOC, they may also be used to convert older non tab wheels. A hole is formed to aid welding to the wheel well without distorting the rim. Price is per set of 3 for one wheel.
All KR200 models imported by Cabin Scooter Assemblies were ordered without wheels, tyres, and batteries. Wheels were manufactured in the West Midlands and were either fitted on arrival or sent to Regensburg for fitting before shipment to the U.K. Tyres were usually Avon “HM ribbed” type and the wheels were held together by 6 off 5/16 BSF (British Standard Fine) x ¾ inch set screws with mild steel nuts and square section spring washers. While it may seem odd that Messerschmitts would be ordered without wheels, F.W. Wharton was adept at using the quaint British tax laws to his advantage. Incomplete cars would attract a different, lower tax and the cars would be cheaper without wheels. That also explains the company name suffix (Assemblies) suggesting that the cars were assembled locally. Silver paint finish was standard on all U.K. and RSM/FMR home and export market wheels. Wheels fitted with FMR hub cap clips from 1960 (from chassis #72504) were also of U.K. manufacture. All other markets used RSM/FMR wheels with M8 x 16 or M8 x 20mm set screws with mild steel nuts and spring washers.
