would anyone have a picture of an assembled cb 450 front drum /wheel,
i plan to lace the cb 450 front drum into a excel 18" rim 40 hole, using buchanan's ss spokes, and if i had a picture to get the pattern started it would be very helpful
thanks

thanks krap, turns out my hang up was the ss spokes are a little bigger than the stock spokes, i just had to drill a few thou out of the hub holes, then i had a few false starts, but in the end i got it damm it, bit of a pain to get started but feels good once you get it

It appears there are two different spoke #'s (OEM anyway) What is the difference if any? I, too, will be doing this same thing, same wheel and will be my first crack at lacing.

the length of the j bend is the difference
half [20]of them are short and go on the inside row
and half are long and go on the outside row

One part number would be for the inside of the hub spoke, and one part number would be for the outside of the hub spoke. They're two different spokes. Assuming the spokes are sold individually.
