    Wheelwrights in the Lower North Island

    Eventually I plan on getting a set of alloy rims for my CB550F https://4into1.com/rising-sun-rim-sp...=instocknotify

    Does anyone know of a GOOD wheelwright in the lower North Island.

    Thanks for your input in advance.

    Kind regards

    36 or 40 spoke? 36 is simple, 40 a bit cunty, why don't you do it yourself? jig it up as it is, then use that jig to set the new rims, then get someone else to check it. 36 means each spoke is ten degress apart and 0with that there's always an opposite, 40 not so.

    Thank you guys for the suggestions.

    Spyda I'm using the existing hub so all the old spokes will be cut in half and removed.

    yip, so you build a jig of whats there, make mods for any rim variations in sizing, if needed.
    Then undo the old spokes, don't be an animal, and wire in the new ones...... it's a mathmatical job more than anything, simple patience will get you there
