1978 Honda XR75 17" Front Wheel

I made some progress on my front wheel. The hub finish was pretty bad so stripped it, primed and painted it using satin black Rust-oleum Engine Enamel.

I laced up a 17" TTR125 rim and heavy duty spokes to the XR75 hub using a ProWheel rim & spoke set that I found on e-bay, ProWheel part number 17-HDSTTR. The hub spoke holes needed to be drilled out to fit the heavy duty spokes. It was pretty difficult lacing with the HD spokes. I probably should have used stock Yamaha spokes but now I am committed to HD for the rear as well.
