im not sure if this a question that can be just "answered" but i figure ill give it a shot anyway.

i have a early 70's triumph conical rear hub. i need to match it to a harley style 16" wheel. my question is, do i have to send the hub out to be set into the wheel, or, hopefully, is there a spoke kit that i can purchase that will just work.

im trying not to have the wheel sent out due to time issues, id like to have a rolling chassis in 2 weeks or less. so i was hoping there would just be a set of spokes that will solve my problem.

thanks for forgiving my ignorance. . .

I am not sure exactly what your hub looks like but I was able to lace my Triumph rear hub to a 16 inch Harley wheel with a spoke kit I grabbed off of Ebay. Try going on Ebay and type in motorcycle spokes and see what pops up. The set I bought stated that they were specifically for converting Triumph hubs to fit a Harley rim. Hope this helps ya!
