Default 19x2.5" Excel Front Wheel w/ Tire - New

Brand new 19x2.5" 36 spoke front wheel with 100/90-19 tire. Properly built and perfect for any restro-mod project. All parts are brand new with exception of the hub. $280, shipping costs are extra due to size. Located in New Jersey.

Started with a 36 hole front hub which I bead blasted and painted with PJ1 Epoxy Frame paint gloss black. Includes chrome disc flange cover if you run the single rotor. Aluminum rim is an 19x2.5" RK Excel Takasago drilled properly for the XS hub by Buchanan's. Spokes are stainless steel 8/9 gauge also from Buchanan's. I laced up, trued and tensioned the wheel properly in a truing stand. Spoke threads have proper lubricant. New Rim Strip installed prior to the Bridgestone BT45 100/90-19V tire and Metzeler tube. Static balanced only required .5oz(14g).

Please consider that all the parts alone cost me over $450. I am only selling since I want an 18" front wheel instead (mid-project change of heart) I do have the parts to build a matching 18x3.5" with 130/80-18 rear combo should you only consider a full set.

Bump for the compliment and price drop.

I finished up that matching rear last night, a beauty as well.

Since I've received questions regarding the matching rear wheel, here are some pictures. Similar specs to the front wheel: RK Excel 18x3.5", Buchanan Stainless spokes, Bridgestone BT45V 130/80-18. Balanced and ready to go. Flawless aside from one small scratch on rim from mounting tire (darn stiff cold tires).

Now, to be completely honest, I want this rear wheel for myself so if need to sell it just to sweeten the deal with the front, I'll just end up build another one just like it. As a result, I'm not planning on discounting the rear wheel since I need to recover my cost to build another. Additionally, the rear wheel has my original hub unlike the front for which I pick up a used hub. As a result I will need a replacement rear hub (not a big deal if I find an illusive disc spoke rear hub). As a result, asking $580.

I also have the matching drum hub which I won't need if I can find the disc rear wheel.
