    I've used this site to calculate spoke length:
    Spoke length calculator

    You'll need several accurate measurements from your hub, and one measurement from the rim that you plan to use.

    Before I first used this calculator I measured my Stock hub and Stock rim to see how close the calculated spoke length came to stock, it was less than 1/2 millimeter off, good enough for me.
    I just don't ever want spokes that are too long and I have to grind them down before the rim strip can go on...

    Thanks guys, I'll probably be going the same route as 83XLX. And wow another gorgeous bike. I doubt it looked that clean right off the factory floor!

    Thanks! No, it looked nothing like this on the factory floor... Hope the tires work out for you!

    Wow! That is awesome looking. Is that the blue one from your avatar? I gotta say they both look great.

    Yes, same bike. I turned it back to stock-ish a couple years ago. This is how it looks today - a CL with low bars and a CB exhaust. I still have the café parts and may return it to that look someday, but I like it a lot like this, and it's more comfortable to ride.

    Nice! Boy that would be a tough call between them. The tank and exhaust on the Cafe are really good looking. But the blue and white is classy vintage.

    One more quick question. The stock rims use center stem tubes, right? And is a 1 1/4 inch wide rim strip enough?
