Kinda hard to see but is there a spacer between the bearings?

Just making sure. I was hoping that they were at least there when you tore the wheels down. I've bought used wheels like that before.

HF blast cabinet works pretty good...

Hoping to be a roller this weekend.

I'm not seeing them, but maybe you took the picture of ones side before the spacer and opposite bearing were fitted. 

I brought home a bike a couple of years ago that seemed a little hard to push.  Turned out one of the bearing spacers was missing and the outer bearing race has collapsed and the balls were "square".  My guess is that it was a mile or so away from the wheel bearings collapsing completely.  So I tend to be a bit anal about wheels and bearings now.

You're sorta correct :P
The pic was taken before the spacer was installed though ;)

Got a little bit more done...




Quality Control seemed pleased.


Wheels/tires will get mounted/balanced this week. So, she'll be a roller next weekend ;)

Looking at putting a set of those rear shocks on my xs750, what center to center did you order and actual measurement?  Need 310mm give or take a dime to keep angles decent with the front drop. Wheels turned out 👍🏼 , love me some gold accents
And two-stroke smoke

Iirc, they are the 310mm versions. I can get you an actual measurement this evening ;)
