Thanks for all of the comments! As is typical, I let myself get derailed. You may remember that a local shop was going to order some spokes for me and lace up the freshly powder coated rims and hubs. They estimated this would take 2 weeks. That was in May. I finally picked everything up (unassembled - no change from when I dropped them off!) about a month ago. I just now placed what I am hoping will be my last large-scale parts order. It included spokes, wheel bearings, swingarm pivot nuts (I stripped one of mine), among many other odds and ends.

So no worthwhile updates now, but look for changes and progress in the near future.
