if you want to race ss just get new one.
penske is easy to turn in to second gen..email me direct and I can help you
I am also dealer for Leo Vince if you want best :)
rear wheel needs all spacers and bearings to work.front can work also(as
long you have both fronts from first gen)but would not be legal for ss.
