    SPOKED WHEELS CLUB - Check in and post your pictures!

    There aren't many of us with spoked rims on our CX500s and GL500s, so lets have a little page here to check in and show off. I'd love to see some other spoked rims here, as there are a few different ways to do it, and it'd be fun to see what you all have done to make it happen!

    Here's mine so far:

    That's a CX500 rear hub, Moto-synthesis rings, a 17x4.25 steel Harley rim, Shinko 705 150/70/17 tire, and spokes made for lacing a 16" Harley rim to a GL1000 hub.

    I've got a Cognito-moto GSXR750 hub for my front end, and I'm waiting on spokes, a rim, new rotors, and a few other parts, and then I'll have a front spoked rim too!

    I've shown you mine, now you show me yours!!

    neither

    the rear swing arm and final and driveshaft are cx650 custom i have fit a vt800 shadow rear wheel on srt of upside down as the vt pumpkin is on the other side

    i then made cut sleeve bushings from 20mm od 17mm id and coated them with antiseize and pressed one piece into the wheel and one piece into the brake drum

    and slid the stock cx650 axle back in

    the front end is a 1982 cb650 standard front end in its entirety and is pretty much stock except for the stainless steel brake line and all balls neck bearings

    Very cool Murray. CB650, that's a nice way to do it! Saves having to find custom spokes (my current woe) for the front spoke rings. (I've got another bike I'm building, and it'll have spoked rims too)
