Current ride: Buell s1 tube
Hi, I've just bought a lovely S1 and wanted to explore changing the wheels to spoken as the casts are past there best.
Does anyone know of a good and affordable option?
There are several very expensive Italian option but are about 2+ grand plus rubber etc.? Beyond my means....

Thanks for you help, and as a new owner great to read back over all the posts and great information.

I doubt you'll find a cheap spoked alternative. Why not just get the wheels powder coated?

There was someone on here who did it... but I can't recall his name!
Come on folks... he built that alloy caff racer thing, think his location line was, "In a shed in Hampshire" ..not far from me in Horndean IIRC

Hi all
Thanks for all the responses. That was my first ever post so good to know you are all out there.
The wheels are powder coated but have lived a little before and since?

Ill keep you posted if i find anyone who has a decent set for sensible money?
I've has classic wheels built for classics and trackers so ill see if Talon can do a set.

thanks

Don't ask Maz, he'll tell you its a shit idea and make you wish you didn't ask.
Have your wheels stripped and recoated, they will look like new.
