Harrisonburg Honda - they will lace whatever... they laced RJs CB750 hubs to a HD rear rim

Patriot HD - they will only lace HD rims and hubs

Feel free to add some more!

Apparently I can. Smooth and straight up to 105mph.

It was my first time doing it, may have just gotten lucky. I found a website that explained how to do it. Then it's just a matter of taking your time and small increments.

I don't have the link still but I'm sure one could be found on the supermotojunkie forum.

Valley Cycles in Winchester can lace wheels. They have some good dirt guys up there.

on the internet you can be anyone you want, it's strange that so many people choose to be so stupid

I have never done it but apparently there are tons of videos on youtube that show you how to do it.

It's not that hard to lace and true yourself, you do need a few tools though.

a truing stand helps and it will be easier with one (you can also use it for tire balancing) However it's possible to just use the swingarm. To do it quickly and have make it correct you need Two dial indicators. It's possible to get away with one but it will take 10X as long.
I’ll normally get it to about .020" vertical run-out then adjust my horizontal runout to about .010" Then go back to reduce the vertical while watching the horizontal indicator and making sure it stays where it started.

Say for example you are .010" high so you tighten a left spoke to bring it down .005, in doing this it pulls the rim to the left as well as down (the horizontal indicator will show movement) now you need to pull it to the right by tightening the corresponding right spoke/s the same amount by watching the indicators.
