Any wheel builders here? (looking for hub too)

I want to track down a front moped/motorcycle hub that has some sort of disc mount to replace the front wheel on an MB-5 I'm building from the ground up. Does anyone have any advice?

I don't want to use the original front cause I want it to match my rear conventionally laced electric hub motor. (edited)

I don't mind building the wheel from scratch.. I want it to match the rear perfectly if possible (edited)

MB-5 wheels are 18inches. I know of a set of Kawasaki AR80 Wheels that have a disc and would work great.

they would line up with the original caliper?

new spacers should fix that, i imagine they could not be to far off

Man, I was hoping someone was gonna be like "I BUILD WHEELS"

I've got some toasted rims but the hubs/bearings/brakes are all good. I wanted to see about getting them set up with some nice new spokes and rims.

Re: Any wheel builders here? (looking for hub too)

I have laced and powder coated nice sets.

It takes time and monies typical stuff.

sealed bearings and spacers and hubs axles and rims and new spokes all needed.

holmes hobbies out here in columbia missouri builds moped wheels, but I think he is taking a break.

Re: Any wheel builders here? (looking for hub too)

I've bought spokes from him before, and know him on endless-sphere. He hasn't replied to my email (sent almost a week ago I think) yet. why do you think he is taking a break? vacation you mean? (edited)
