Planning Stages of a 1984 Honda XL600 Project.
« on: Apr 20, 2018, 05:25:00 »
Hey all!

I'm in the planning stages of a build with my 1984 Honda XL600.  I've wanted to do one of these for quite a while, and recently found a great deal on the XL of my dreams.  I'm really looking to flex my fingers on the metal fabrication bits for this build, which I've got a bit of experience in.  What I don't have experience in, however, is wheels in general. In my previous builds, its been just the fab, and this one's going to be a ground up build. 

Im pretty set on the 19 inch front and 18 inch rear using the Excel (takasagos maybe) rims.  I've heard great things about them and they seem like a good fit.  Now my question is, what spokes should I purchase if I'm planning on using my stock hubs?  I know that DCC has a a custom spoke service, but I would rather figure all this out myself and learn the process.  Any suggestions? 

Thanks all

Contact Buchanan for spokes.  Also consider Transalp and XR for swap options on wheels.
