carbon fiber or magnesium wheels for k1200rs

Hello, I have just come into possession of a well used 99 K1200 that belonged to a friend who passed away. I want to bring his pride and joy into pristine condition and do a little more. One place is with suspension and wheels. I saw a post on now of the sites (can't remember which) with pics of a beautiful set of carbon fiber wheels for the k1200, but the post and link were about 7 or 8 years old, so the link was dead.

Anybody know of a source for some carbon fiber wheels? Perhaps magnesium? Anybody have personal experience with them on the k1200?

Thanks for any help.
John

Why??? That would be soooo t00nr d00d. Think Gixxer with wheelie bars on the street...

Not all who wander are lost. Which still leaves room for more than a few lost wanderers...

Water transfer printing is a much cheaper way to go for the same look:

The hydrographic painting looks cool. Just curious here about it's durability and maintenance/touch up.
