I bent my front wheel at the LA-Barstow-Las Vegas ride 2 weeks ago....in two different places. Finally took it in for a possible fix but realized the best thing is to do the Woody's wheels thing. And BigNasty's idea of ...sort of repair the oldie and put a street tire sounds awesome. Thanks for the advice.

I bent mine pretty good up in northern NV. I was going to try and bend it back but I'm sure that it'll happen again and again.

I think its time to get a really good Woody...

I've laced one wheel before on a Husky 175, 30 years ago. IIRC it wasn't too hard. I sold it so I don't know if it held up.

Mine has a bad headshake from the wheel. I don't likie.

So I'm thinking I will buy a 1.8 wheel from DID etc and lace it up.

I think I can do it.?

Need new spokes, huh, and new bearings.

I want Woodys but the $$$ and the time off is no bueno.

Does anyone have a wheel for sale and not some bent sonofbitch like I have? ha

Acetylene with a rosebud tip or is just a propane torch enough?
Thanks,

Have you called Buchanan's Spoke & Rim? $107 to straighten & true a laced wheel, not including shipping.

Or if you want to go with a new rim: $260 for a 21"x2.15" black anodized Sun rim.

Just check out their services.

19"?

I'm still riding on the bent fucker. I replaced some spokes on the rear after a flat and trued it. So I've come down the learning curve some. I didn't use a dial indicator. I used an ammo box and a strong light and eyeballed it.

But I'm thinking of going to the 19" front wheel.

Can I get a 19" rim will it bolt up without changing the front fender/brakes/etc?

I can't decide. I already have a new 21 front tire.

Does the narrower 21" rim feel narrower. I know the 19 would corner better. I ride on the street mostly. I should do the 19 shouldn't I?

Clearance Problem

I got the 21" Excel and laced it on with a Metz tire.

I did the wheel insulation sequence.

Axle from throttle side. Flush with the leg.

Tighten pinch bolts on throttle side and tighter big nut.

Loosen both sides and pump forks.

Tighten both sides of pinch bolts.

Problem: Rotor attachment bolts hitting caliper.

I tried not tightening the big bolt but the wheel has too much side to side.

What is wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Did you use the stock 230mm length spoke?

I don't know. I used a stock hub and an Excel wheel.

I bought the spokes from Woody also.

It's the hub that's hitting anyway.

The spacers may in the wrong sides. There's a long one and a short one. If reversed, things won't fit right.

I'm stumped.

I've taken it off and on several times, triple checked the procedure and I understand how it works. Thick spacer opposite throttle.

For some reason when you tighten up the big nut it pulls the throttle side caliper in too much. So much that the wheel won't turn.

Is the hub directional? It doesn't have a left and a right side. I just put on a new rim and could have reversed the sides.

Are the bearings the same left and right?

Thanks in advance.

I did the tightening procedure again minus the fork pump.

Problem solved. I guess me forks aren't exactly parallel.
