Yea I'm using a David Bird bolt on hardtail (4" stretch 2.5" drop) so I guess I'll see how that factors in.

After attempting to lace a 19" front for a '73 T100R as the first post shows everything initially looks good. When flipping the nipple is at the incorrect angle. Any idea what I may be doing wrong?

Is it the large flange drive side or the small flange that needs to protrude 1/8" past the rim side? Thanks Isaac

Large flange so it spaces your drum and sprocket over enough to prevent chain rub, or at least keep it to a minimum.

I am a new member to this forum. I have done most everything on my Triumphs over the years however have never spoked a wheel so I am giving it a try on my 68 Triumph T120R Front wheel. Something is just not coming out right as I follow the pattern on the pics and the spokes line up to the nipples however the hub is way off center.I checked the wheel ( 19 x 1.85 40 #27-1230) and the spoke kit from Buchanan (Kit# TRI 712 SS). 20 straight spokes 5"9/16 N, 10 Hooked spokes 4"3/4 M95, and 10 Hooked spokes 4"3/4 S80. I put the M95s over(outer) the S80s.

Great thread guys, i've only just cottened onto the thread today but some great info in there.... I'm 600km's away from any decent bike workshops and am doing most everything myself and are about to tackle lacing up. Good tips mentioned and thankfully I now know that the 16" harley rim and triumph hub is a common setup too, so should i get stuck i'll be asking some questions

I know this thread was started a while ago, but it has some good tech and i referenced it for my current project.
Unfortunately i ran into a problem where the 1/8" offset was not enough. In fact i set it at 1/4" when i did it..
I'm running a Triumph cotton spool hub (drum brake) matted to an original HD 16x3 with a 5x16 Shinko tire, laced it with Buchanan spokes, and the 1/8th" didn't give me enough clearance for the chain at all.
I have to break it back down and reset dish, but it looks like i need an additional 3/8" to 7/16ths to clear the tire by 1/8" ( or a touch less) at the chain.
Anyone else run into this?

I measured with a straight edge across the drive side hub face, and the distance is 1/4" to the rim lip..

I have done over 60 of them with the shinko and the 1/8" is always plenty... But I also use the rim that comes from China with a Routts spoke set from "Triumphwizard"... I use the same rims, same spokes for every single bike I build...

It's probably just the combination i'm using.
Still appreciate you taking the to offer the tech. Still helped me regardless of the offset issue.

You might be able to walk it over by loosening spokes on left side, tightening on the right. I did about 2 revolutions/ spoke all the way around on the left, then tighten 2 revs all the way around on the right.

3x of this got me about 1/4"-3/8" more clearance if I recall. I was running a Firestone 5.00 tire which causes it to be pretty offset, depends on how OCD you are...
