I extensively searched, but to no avial. Lots of dudes lacing Harley rims to their Honda hubs. I haven't seen anyone lacing Harley hubs to Honda rims. I'm wanting to run a rear disc setup on my DOHC CB750 and found a few dual flange Harley hubs for a decent price. It seems like I could run into an angle issue in regards to the dimples in rim due to the honda having a 3 spoke cross over pattern as opposed to Harley having a 4 spoke cross over.

Anyone have any experience with this? for the price I may just buy a hub and lay it all out to see how it lines up.

Obviously I would have to order the appropriate length spokes, different bearings, yada, yada.

The 75/76 cb750F SS had a rear disc set up, but something custom for my custom build would be cool.

Thanks!

If you're going custom, and you haven't bought the parts, why not just use an already built Harley rear wheel?

The bike is already together and running and set up with the honda wheel. I was just trying to salvage the new tire I just bought al9ng with the fender set up etc. Plus for what I've found a hub is pretty cheap....but as you suggested i will likely just buy a full wheel already built and re-do my fender mounts etc

Seems like they are definitely worth the call from what I've read. Thanks!
