1983 Honda XR 500

I am hoping that someone can tell me if there is another bike that might have a 18" rear wheel that will interchange with mine. I have a 17" and would like to have the selection of 18".

An xl one should fit. Im pretty sure my 79-81 xl250s had an 18.

All the 83 to 87 XR350, 500 and 600 use the same 17" rear wheel. They can use an 18" from an 88 to 90 XR600. Problem is these wheels are hard to find and expensive cause of demand and rarity. I've been watching for a reasonably priced one on ebay for about a year. Usually when they are auctioned they go for the same cost as buying spokes from Buchanan and a new 18" rim anyway.
