    Purchased a "new-to-me" Honda CL77; needs new rims

    Just purchased a tired but complete 67 Honda CL77.
    Front and rear rims however are extremely rusty.
    Would like to use my hubs and install new spokes and rims laced up.

    Any Suggestions on who to have the word done with? Buchanans wheels perhaps?
    Doesn't like it is going to be cheap, I am guessing around $300. per wheel?

    Thanx!

    If you are uysing 18 inch rims, 36 spokes, check out MikesXS for aluminum rims, much cheaper and work fine. I suspect you are 18 inch rims? Mikes has regular profile and H profile rims.

    For spokes, Buchanan's is great for Stainless spokes. No rust, easy to clean....Check my build for the replacement of my rims and spokes.

    The Honda CL77 Scrambler uses 19 inch rims.

    You need a 40 spoke rim for the CL77.

    There are rechromed front and rear CL77 rims in two separate auctions on ebay right now.
    Front Rim Honda 305 Scrambler CL77 | eBay
    Rear Did Rim Honda 305 Scrambler CL77 | eBay

    They look like good rider quality.
