Wheel Lacing

Post by KO 69 Chopper » Mon Mar 03, 2008 12:23 pm

Hi guys
I have a couple of old 16inch wheels. The honda has a buckled rim and some broken spokes. The yamaha or kawasaki is in good shape.
I want to swap the honda hub to the good rim and spokes.
Wheel lacing appears to be a lost art.
I know theres a place in Brisbane that does it.
Anybody closer to me and how much should i expect to pay?
Remember im in that economic backwater down here in Tas.
Your comments would be appreciated.

Hey there Andrew...there's a few on here that do there own, I know Kansas Charlie does so he might be worth a pm [speaking of which mine still don't get thru to you..all others ok!!!!!!!!! ] Just had one done myself by Ash's in Brisbane..came up really good..new 21'' rim, stainless spokes & tyre, I supplied the hub...now looking at doing a rear 18'' when I find a hub. Sorry to hear about your dad mate.
