    Just wondering if the Suzuki locking hubs are the same as the cruiser locking hubs. They look identical on the outside, but are they the same spline, fit, rating? Could the Suzuki Dealership be an alternative to the overpriced Toyota part?

    I saw one of the coolest uses of the sami hubs at the BHCC. One of the Canucks had used them when building his rear swingout tire carrier. The selector flanges look just like the ones on cruisers, but the hub/spindle's are tiny. Looked really cool.

    Sorry, no pics
