Wheel Rebuild

Recommended Posts

Hi, Im in the process of rebuilding the wheels on my 81 TLNW 320. What I forgot to do before stripping them was to check if the rim was in the middle of the hub or offset to one side.

Anybody able to help ?

 

Thanks,

 

Phil

Just rebuilt a rear Bultaco.

Can you not fit the hub back in the swingingarm, check chain alignment and then find the hub centre in the arm?

Hi Petorius, I dare say there are ways and means but I thought that I am not the first person to rebuild some SWM wheels and someone out there would know the answer.

 

For the record, I centred the rims, the rear looks fine but the front is just a bit too close to the righthand fork leg. Not much in it, about 5 mm is all it is. Could also be my bad centre calculation.

 

Ciao,

 

Phil
