Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

Road my Boxer to a friends house with a tube and rim around my neck and shoulder hanging. Spokes and tools in a back pack. Made a bet i could re-lace my rear hub to a large Marge rim with no truing stand and have a straight as a whistle wheel in under an hour.

My first two wheels I ever built from scratch are still sitting here. About to finish my next bike. When I ever get a day off again. lol.

This wheel building stuff is getting to be very easy for me. I can't believe I hadn't done it sooner. I just step it in when tightening it up using the spokes heads as a reference. I get the idea that is how the machines in factories do it? The heavy duty double wall construction of these rim are very forgiving too!

This Bike feels way different and better to me I think with the extra wide rim. Gotta ride it a few more times and report back. Looks hella kewl!
Still gotta have a since of humor.
