So is fitting led lighting all round much of a job when running the original loom?  I'm not great with electrics but usually muddle my way through it.

CWC have offered to take the outer spokes back and copy my samples, in the meantime I've torqued them up and this is the extent of the bow.  Is it something I can get away with or should I get then remade?  I'm just concerned that if they come back wrong or even worse than what I currently have I won't have a leg to stand on.

I think the problem is they have a monopoly on the product

Yes Johnny that's exactly the issue with mine, your photos show it perfectly! The way the butted end contacts the hub causes the spoke to arc towards the rim.  Hopefully that doesn't weaken them as a result but I can't see how they can say its right.

I had exactly the same problem with my 750 front wheel. I had emails back and forth with CWC and pointed this out to them. They tried to assure me that this was the way all the spokes were and the build would be fine. And I have to say it seems to be fine so far.😜

Exactly the response I've got from them but I think they are wrong.  Terrible sketch as I'm rushing at work but you get the gist.

This is what I'm getting at

No I've got them in the correct sides, I've built wheels before so I'm certain if that, I think the small straight section before the bend is too short the the thickness of the hub

Have you got a side on Photo Dom, from that angle it looks like the spokes are in the wrong holes or facing the wrong way.

No it's all correctly laced Julie, it's the bend on the outer spokes that is the issue.

This shows the arc that the outers are needing to take to meet the rim, this is holding them well off the inners where they cross.  If I torqued them up I think it could weaken then at the point the butted section slims down, what do you all think?

I've received my spokes from Central Wheel Components today, just laced up the front wheel but they've got the outers wrong on the bend, there's not enough length on the bend to allow it to have the right angle towards the rim nipple.  I've ordered from them before an d so far never had them sent correctly.

Ted / Steve. Have the pipes got any markings, script or stamings on them?
Indeed, would be nice to see an (E) embossed, maybe even a small booklet with the homoligation included, making our MOT inspectors happy, hence usage even possible...
I'm not asking for that reason as not many replica exhaust systems for old bikes have that type of info stamped on them anyway. Im really wanting to know if they have Delkevic stamped on them.

That's the one thing I don't like about my Delkevic, the etched logo ruins it and it can't be rotated out of view.  Different exhaust than this discussion is about obviously.

Warmed up the hub and frozen the bearings in a bag to try and limit ice forming on then the tapped home with a large socket. They slipped in nicely

I've assembled the hub tonight, with bearings and spacer fitted it ends up flush on the right side in order that the retainer presses the left bearing up to its seat.  As I recall that's how it was when I disassembled it

Is that front or rear wheel Dom?

Front Ted
