Check with American Wire Wheels...they may do something, or know more about it at least.

try contacting TALON, they build alot of supermoto hubs. maybe they can do something for your bike. probably won't be cheap though. OR, you can dig around a junk yard and see if you can match something up, you need something with the same axle diameter, rotor and sprocket bolt patterns, and the right rotor offset to bolt it on. there are ways of making things fit though, spacers, adapters, etc, are fairly simple to make.

You could try these guyshttp://http://www.buchananspokes.com/

Dymag also sells spoked rims for newer bikes. In the Jan. issue of 2 Wheel Tuner there is an ad for oncycles.com the U.S. distributor for Dymags . There is a picture of the wheel in their ad. They are expensive. If you go to the oncycles website they have a wheel fitment section where you can find out if they make them for your bike.

did you ever find out what wheels would work for your application? I am currently looking for spoked wheels for my GSXR1000 front end and I have a single sided swingarm that im probably going to use a spoked car wheel for.

Those are sweet Scrapyard! That's the first time I've seen aftermarket wire spoked/tubeless rims. Only ones I knew of were the BMW GS stockers. Too bad they don't make them in "big bike" sizes...

Those look cool as hell, but no way I am trusting CF for wheels...I have seen links of CF mags exploding.

nope spokes arent popular here. just on fat hogs and old jap bikes. i think their very under rated. i want some on mine bad but nobody here can make them for a decent price. im not paying a grand a piece for a damn rim. spokes on cruiser are like 150 each.
