    Also, here's another 36-hole rear wheel I put together with the moto-synthesis rings. I found some oddball spokes that worked a lot better than the GL1000/CB750 harley 16" drop-center rim conversion spokes I used for my first rear wheel. Pics of the oddball spokes and the assembled (but not yet trued) 36-spoke rim:

    The gas tank is from a CB360!

    I will not ride the bike like that, I will raise the forks before any ride. I dropped the forks only for the photos!

    Like Murray said, don't drop your forks more than one inch!

    Settled for .015". Getting it down to .010" was exceedingly difficult. Radial runout was easy, the lateral was the hard one. Specs are <= .030 radial and <= .040 lateral, so I'm okay with .015.

    Finally mounted the tire, installed the rotors, and attached the wheel. It's kind of glorious. Or well, it would be if I ever washed the thing.
