Altho other materials would do, you cant beat the look of utilitarian lead as a wheel balance weight FT182 on a vintage Vincent.
Plus lead is so easy to work with as a raw material.

An alternative is to make some from stainless. Stainless is about 70% the density of lead, so they only need to be a bit bigger.

That's what I did,I piled lots of old nuts on the studs to balance the wheel, weighed them on the wife's kitchen scales then turned off some S/S round bar to the same weight. Job done. Incidently, a brand new Avon 300x20 Speedmaster needed a lot of weight to correct the unbalance-anyone else come across this?
