Thanks man- I sure think so too! The hub is so damn pretty I donít want to powder coat or paint it. Itís like jewelry. This 750 should be able to do stoppies now!

The front of my Y fronts are stretching at the sight of that wheel.  Very nice indeed.

This is where Iím at today. I was able to get the rear hub polished and laced up. Now I have have two wheels that need trued. My friend Larry is going to teach me how to do that. Iím excited to learn another aspect of bike building that I wonít have to pay someone else to do.

Holy shit those wheels look good, damn.  Maybe I should get myself a polishing wheel after all...

Looking good man, looking good...

Truing the wheels ain't no thing - I did mine on my CB750 and with a bit of time and patience got them pretty good.  And they were pretty beaten up too.  Bought myself this thing -

and then built this rig using a couple of axle stands -

I got some great help on how to true rims, you can read it in my build thread there.  You'll need to take off the drum brake assembly off the rear wheel of course.  Good luck!

Oh, and if you don't have one already get yourself a spoke wrench -

Very, very helpful.

And another thing!  Once they're trued and you're ready to sling on the rubber, look into Counteract balancing beads.  I used them in my tires and they work great (they're like Dyna Beads), plus it negates the need to dump a load of weights on your snazzy rims.  Worth looking into.
