replacing front wheel

Postby Tommysparta » Sun Sep 16, 2018 11:28 am

1982 cb650c-----having trouble finding a clean front 19 inch rim/wheel. Will a 19inch wheel from a 350cb work if I get the right bearings spacers etc? Any suggestions on where I can find a refurbished front wheel?

Have you considered buying a new rim and lacing it to your existing hub?

Find a trusted seller, I imagine. And post here for reference. Get more pair of eyes on it and you won't go wrong.
