How do I go about a 10" wheel conversion on a 150 VBB? Do I just fit PX forks and a PX engine?

If you have a speedometer/odometer driven from the front wheel you will need to deal with that.

Rough measuring...

8” tire 39” circumference

10” tire 53” circumference

30mph with 8” tire approximately 41mph with 10” tire.

PK fork is for disc conversion. Will give small leftward misalignment (2-4mm standard). Re-fitting the mudguard is a pitfa - honestly the hardest part of going down that path.

Can get conversion hubs for VBB motor and front if discs and P200 aren’t ‘required’. Think you can even get speedo drive conversions also.
