Hello, I'm Jeremy.
A late 30's family man from Ohio.

Just bought a used 2003 800 Velousia with 19k miles for a little over 2k.
Nice bike and nice ride. Wife loves it.
Im Loving it except for my little dilemma below.

Recently had a flat and am looking for Mag wheels for it.
I understand the O.E.M. wheels are all spoked. But I also understand some of the other models had Mag OEM wheels that are interchangeable.

My problem is:
Which make and year rear MAG wheel will fit a 2003 Velousia?

The C50C wheels are tubless. Plug and play. The M50 wheels are also tubeless, but there is a difference in the spacer, so some fitting is needed.

Welcome from Kennesaw GA!

I was pretty sure all of the C models had spoked rims with tubes, but Skrap tends to be right, except that one time eight years ago. It might take a bit of work, but I'm sure you can find some. Most any wheel that says it fits a C50 will work. As Skrap said, the M50 had a slightly narrower rim.

Greetings from Indiana

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
