Default Re: My 20's Style Touring Build

Decided to paint the frame today while it was apart, going for the vintage motorcycle look so I chose flat black.

I would highly reccomend Krylon Satin Black (indoor/outdoor). It went on well and gave a smooth flat finish. Painted the fork and it looks excellent.

I need to respoke my rear wheel, I have the spokes and new hub, but does anyone know if Sheldon Brown's tutorial on wheelbuilding is sufficient for a motorbike application? It seems pretty thorough but I had to close up for the night just as the rims were cleaned and prepared to be respoked.
Motorcycles, Motor-bicycles and bicycles- two wheels and the open air is all I need.
