wheel/rim conversions/swap on early/late BMW airhead

My old wheel won't work as it has a 17mm axle, and the 19" rim diameter might be wrong as well. The later model, single shock airheads for road use had a 25mm axle in front and an 18" rim with the spokes mounted along the outer edge. So, at this point I'm mostly wondering whether that newer style front hub could be laced to a more traditional 1.85 or 2.15 x 18 rim with the spokes in the center of the rim, this would better match the rear wheel. Thanks again, Jonathan.
