    I ended up donating the project to my brother to finish - he just got his MC endorsement and needed a bike, and I needed more room in the garage. I'll post up pictures as he goes along with whatever he's going to do with it. I was a little sad to see it go, always hate not finishing a project, but it will be cool to ride with my brother when he wraps it up and gets it on the road.

    Am in the beginning stages of a cx650c build.
    Trying to figure out what to do with the rear wheel.

    Did you finish the VT800 rear wheel relace?
    If so, how did that work out?

    Other options are scarce...

    Viethorse showed us the rear wheel can be made to work.
    Not the look I'm going for though...

    The CX650e 18" rear wheel can be swapped, but is a narrow 120 tire.
    The CX650t has a 17" rear wheel and 130 tire. But unobtainable in Holland.
    On top of that, not too fond of the boomerang comstar.

    So it's down the way Waylongway went with the NT650v swingarm and wheel setup.

    Or your fix.

    I'd like to have spokes, so hope the road you went is open:ricky
