Thanks to Doug I was able to make a truing stand. Now all I have to do is wait till the wheel comes back from the chromer.
I rigged my tire balancer up with dials...who'd a thunk...Heh Heh...long as it works that is all that matters...I thought you would of powder coated your wheels for your VL project???

I did those need to be laced as well. I just rebuilt the hub in the pic and had it powdercoated. That is going on the 57 with the 16 inch wheel with all the holes drilled in it. As soon as I get it done I will post some pics.

kool beanz ..

looks like that's rockin the house already .. I'd'a never thought of all-thread for way-variable-shimming capacity .. neato ..

figured the self-standing aspect was the deal, beats having to clamp in a vise or fix to the bench ..

enjoy !!

Yea took the idea from the stands that are being sold on Ebay. Works excellent!! Well so far. We will see once I try to lace the wheel how it works. A friend of mine said he would show me the ins and outs. Fingers crossed.

bringing this one back from the dead.....

how did it end up working out for you? i have an old cracked hardtail that i chopped off my bike when i got it that i could use as a base. i used my old bicycle shop's truing stand to do my front wheel, i think it may be too narrow for my rear though. bicycle truing stands have a self centering mechanism. how do motorcycle truing stands help get the rim centered on the hub since they only have a gauge on one side of the rim? do you have to flip the wheel over to check it?

The stand worked Excellent! As far as the center of the hub and the rim I used a straight edge off the hub and went by what the book said the offset was. I could have flipped the gauge to the other side if I need it but was lucky and didn't have to. Took some time but at least I can say I laced and trued my own wheels.
Like that means anything:D
