If you want an OEM black star hub, cad spokes and a chrome 16" rim, you will have to lace it yourself. Or find somebody that can.

It really isn't that hard, read the book and give it a try.

Seems that tawain tedds has the chrome wheels with black hubs and stainless spokes. I know the stainless isn't right but I'm building a 58 rider. Just curious does any body have these wheels? are they decent or cheap Bob

Pan58head, I bought a set of wheels from V-Twin, black hubs, stainless spokes and chrome rims. I have about 18,000 miles on them and they are fine.

The chrome will be very thin. I would keep plenty of wax on them.

If you still have your old rims and hubs, here is a good place to have them rebuilt. www.genuinecycle.com
Their prices are a little high, but it goes back to the old saying.
