I dont think you realize how common it is to run tubeless tires on spoke wheels. I, along with many friends have thousands of miles on the road on different bikes with spoke rims made tubeless and have never once with a problem. There is quite a few companies who make professional kits to do it whether it be a rubber strip, or just a goop, or even spoke nipples with o-rings on em, plenty of ways to do it and do it safe and reliable.

nothing wrong with running tubes one them honestly. a lot of super motos do it

if at least one motorcycle wasnt irreparably harmed in the creation of the bike, its not a streetfighter!
