(yes, going to try the black art of wheel building. Fingers crossed...)

Front wheel can be trued in the forks, back wheel in the swinging arm if it's off the bike - however I just purchased this
 from http://www.amazon.co.uk/Beyondfashion-Professional-Motorcycle-Balancer-Balancing/dp/B00MFIRDAA/ref=pd_sim_sbs_kh_6?ie=UTF8&refRID=0RTT12G3GXJMDBGP2RDB might be postage to pay outside UK, I'm pretty happy with it

 They are very handy. I made my own and used it to balance the A65 crankshaft.

Thanks for the picture Bill. Hope you don't mind I nicked it? (the picture that is... no reason to run to the shed in a hurry to see if it's still there *smile* And if it ain't there anymore, it sure wasn't me!!! Honest gov')

Got some steel offcuts lying around doing nothing so going to give it a try and knock something together on the basis of your picture. Have to wait a couple of weeks for the rims anyway, so got some spare time now.

Zero $ and no ₤!

Notice the neat and tidy work area. Also notice the gauging pin (from all-threat rod) sticking through the far timber and pointing at the far side of the rim.

Bob,

The history of chrome hubs (and, for that matter, chrome timing and primary covers) on my bike goes back to the mid-70's when chrome was affordable and there were many good platers in Los Angeles. In '75, the bike was old, but not classic, so no pressure for originality.

Looks great to me Richard ( the wheel that is) I like a bit of bling mind you.

only thing that puzzle a bit is why you want to use it in a wheelbarrow  *smile* (only joking )

just noticed the drill chuck, that's a bit of serious lateral thinking my man

Good eyes Bill  *yeah* Richard once you've dismantled the " wheel barrow " would that chuck fit my Bosch drill ?,thats if you don't need it of course  *lol* seriously Richard looks great, I've gone for the traditional BSA finish , 1/16th of an inch of  chaingrease , at least it stops the rust , regards Bob.

And the fun continues...
Received a nice package from CWC containing two stainless rims and two sets of stainless spokes. Nice bunch of people. Good quality. Worth recommending.
Constructed a wheel balancing thing from some leftover metal and next weekend will be dedicated to wheel building.
Fingers crossed... (or should I say "spokes crossed")
In the mean time finished the wiring, throttle and choke cables and put some bodywork on. Wasn't happy with the look of the handlebar so ordered an ABM superbike handlebar at a modern bike shop. It's a bit wider and a tad bit higher than the standard handlebars, and looks great (I find)

Watch out for the weld when trueing up. My CWC st/st rims are v good but, unsurprisingly, not perfect at the joint.
The spokes were a joy to fit. Double butted and they look good on the bike.

I was v pleased with CWC's quality overall.

Your stand should make lacing and trueing easier than using the frame and forks, which is what I did. Although adjusting the offset was made easier.

Have fun!
