Hi Tazzy,

Welcome to TBhp.

Putting alloys from one to another is not an easy job most of the times. Sometimes its a direct & & for most its not.

The things that should be check or kept in mind are:

- The front I belive is 17 & rear is 18 in Apache. The RX has both 18 inches

- For front, the gap between shocks, mounting of cailpers for disk brakes might be difficult, you may wanna check Discover/Platina/ XCD alloys since they have drum brakes

- For rear the hub'' width & the the central rod which mounts the hub should be similar.

So you would need to find all these details & then find someone who would be able to do this job for you.

Ok since this thread is involving retrofit of alloys i would like to ask another question....
Is it Possible to fit the whole front assembly of another bike to a rx100 complete with disk brake and alloy?Front assembly as in the shocks upto the handlebar.If it was possible i was thinking about discover 135 front assy. /w alloys+disk brakes and rear alloys for the rx100.What would the approx cost of such an install be.Gurus plz comment.
