    Wheel Lacing/Truing/Balancing

    Hey all,

    This isn't strictly a sportbike related thing, but I recently picked up a 1975 Honda CB750 (which is sort of a sportbike!) and I'm wondering if any of you out there know of a person or shop who has a lot of experience with lacing and truing spoked wheels. I'm hoping to ditch all the old rusty spokes rather then spending hours polishing only to find I need to cut some anyway.

    Cheers,
    Scott

    For my money, you got a couple choices. SuperSport in langely or Cypress Motorsports in Delta. They both have experience with what you are trying to do. Good luck.

    Bring it in to 5thgear $90 rim and it will be perfect. I have a retired mechanic who has been doing my stuff for years he's a wizard at it. I can't believe some stuff he has done like 120 spoke odd ball pattern car stuff to 12"wide double row Harley customs. Truing is something your good at or not or just enjoy doing.

    Hey, that's great to know! For a while there I was really sweating trying to figure this out myself. Cheers mate! You'll definitely see me soon.

    If you ever watched that one Biker build off show where the customer had to build his own bike . The spokes either took all day or an hour. It was pretty funny to watch.
