Honda RS1000 restoration: wheels and spokes

Mike Palmgren is currently working on a Honda RS600 restoration. He regularly shares his updates with us.

"The Honda Racing Corporation used Akront aluminum wheels from Spain, which were laced together with Buchanan stainless spokes," says Mike. "With aluminum being such a soft metal, you can imagine how beat up these parts have become over the years - from crashes and rock chips etcetera."

"I spent hours and hours metal finishing these parts and polishing them to perfection. When this process was finished, I started relacing and truing each wheel. The result is stunning."
