Expect custom length spokes to run about $100-150 per wheel. That's just the spokes, of course, not lacing the rim ( which you can do easily).

I doubt seriously they'd be willing to shorten your existing spokes. Spoke threads are actually formed/rolled , not cut like we think with a die, for strength reasons.

You can buy the tool to roll new threads and cut your own spokes down, but I betcha it'd be cheaper to just have a made up in the long run.

Anyone see a way to mount a sprocket like on a ducati but with cartridge bushes in the sprocket instead of the wheel?

About the custom spokes, I misspoke. I was curious if THEY, Buchanan, would just shorten a set they have laying around for a KE. I wasn't aware though that they are rolled not cut. Thanks.
I'm thinking now that there are pretty fixed limits I need to work within on my bike. Sprung and Unsprung weight for sure, as well as front end weight on my skinny head tube. Thanks for steering me towards new rims.

You tell Buchanan what you want laced together and they will make it work. I've had them make me several things over the years. Never been more than $150

I was thinking the exact same thing... I am pretty sure a machined setup to accept the Ducati drive unit and mate it to a small front wheel the same as the Ducati rear mounts the drive unit would work fantastic too.



Using that ^^

To mount to something like this vv

Probably not enough meat to machine a worth while cush on a standard front wheel
