I had not previously built or laced spoke wheels. I found it to be a rewarding challenge, I really don't think my build (still a work in progress) would look proper with the OEM Comstar wheels.

No, the stock wheels wouldn't look right on that bike. Did you do the bodywork? Its amazing looking!

I wish I could take credit for the custom aluminum bodywork used in this build. The tank was made by a craftsman in India, and was intended for a CB750 frame. The tank required major surgery to underside tunnel for clearance with CX500 forward engine hanger, Rear cowl was made by a fellow in Texas. The fairing is from Marcus at Omega Racers in Thailand. I chopped and built a modified sub-frame and had it all professionally welded by a certified welder. I can weld small stuff, but elected not to take any chances with structural frame integrity. The Comstar spoke wheel conversion really helped to tie the whole theme together IMHO.
