nice job man. I had to retry about 5 times when I laced my wheels until I got the start and pattern right. Still have to touch up the scratches I made in the process. >(

Are you having someone else true them or are you doing it yourself?

Cheers.  I'm going to have a go at trueing them myself using and old swing arm and a pointer.  If I can't manage it I know a guy who builds wheels.  I'll post some before and after pics of the wheels when I get the new tyres fitted, hopefully by Monday.

Hey Steve

It's probably a little late now, but there is a flat option of these battery's available that I'm going to use in my sr250.

Have a look here (four cell)

http://antigravitybatteries.com/?page_id=994

i found a good option.. you can get lipo4 cell packs on eBay... and other suppliers... do a Google for >
"123A lipo4 4s1p" 123a is the battery type, lipo is the make, 4s refers to the number of cells, 1p refers top parallel wiring . tiny tiny batteries that come in at 13.5 volts....

Finished lacing my powder coated wheels with new stainless spokes today, and I'm very happy with them.  You can see from the pic below that I used my old swingarm and a pencil to get them true.  It takes a while, but it saved me £80 and I have the satisfaction of knowing I did it myself.  I'll be getting the tubes and tyres fitted tomorrow.

Here are my wheels with their new shoes on, and I think they look great.  Well chuffed.  Also, here is a pic of my new seat and speedo that arrived today:

Primed the last of my bits and bobs.  I'm spraying the swingarm rather than powder coating as the bushes are in good condition and I didn't want to knacker them by taking them out.  Just waiting for my new swingarm bolt to arrive from Holland and I can start the rebuild.

Are you doing the orange/black? I really love that combo.

Great work so far.
