I'm fairly new to bikes and was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to get tires mounted on my spoked wheels. I called Bayside and they don't do spokes, and the HD dealership wants $55 per wheel. I have the wheels off the bike and can just bring them down to get them changed.
Also, does anyone know why it's so expensive? Should I just mount the tires myself at my buddies shop and get someone to balance it? $55 per wheel is pretty expensive in my opinion, I can get car wheels done for less than half that.
BTW, the bike is a 72 CB350, so it may not be a sportbike, but this seems like the best local bike forum (and no I'm not building it to be a cafe, everyone is growing facial hair, buying useless leather jackets from the 80s and putting clip-ons and cafe seats on their bikes cause it's apparently the "cool" thing to do. haha)
