Not Aluminum but different steel rims.

I used (cheep, new) motocross rims from the local motorcycle salvage shop, steel rims Araya 1.40 19, 36 spoke on the stock hubs.. I trued the rim with old bicycle spokes then ordered Bucanans stainless to fit. These rims won't fit a 3.25 19 so I've mounted 2.75 19.

I see no reason to not use aluminum rims. I'll bet Buckanans will make spokes with the names only. Anodized Red (say)?

After much time away. Work related. Seems the war is going to let me
take a break.
I am finally back to work on my 48s Hummer race project. Has anyone
laced aluminum dirt bike rims to the original hubs and mechanical
breaks? Any suggestions on aluminum rims to use?
Thanks,
Kent
