Hi Brian,
what did he charge? Does he work from home or the garage on the website? Thats just down the road from me. In fact it used to be owned by an old friend (ex WW2 dispatch rider) and he used to MOT our bikes there.

Very nice Brian! Hope you kept hold of the old Hub! They are also known as hens teeth!

picked up today . cost breakdown :-
blast and powdercoat rim(contracted out) = £ 45
st/st spokes (hagon,+ p&p) £ 76 + 8
build and make true wheel = £ 35

the spokes make up the bulk of the cost. central wheels spokes are only a tad cheaper. he makes his own steel spokes and are a lot cheaper as a result but stainless is the way to go imho.

overall ,am happy with the finished result.

Not too different to prices we charge which is nearer £200 but it does include the hub blasted and powder coated as well..

Worth every penny as id adds the finishing touch to any bike...!
