Damn, respoking wheels is a bastard.
Spent about two hours unspoking the BD36 from the 26" re-spoking it into the 20" rim. I THOUGHT the spokes were sized for a radial pattern (as hubs in small rims usually use radial spoke patterns). Get about halfway around the rim and realized there's WAY to much extra spoke, which means that the spokes are the length needed for a cross-one pattern. Ugh.
Take the motor out again. I see that my other bike is red and remember that I wanted the motor painted black
So I strap it into the vice and give it a little juice with the charger as the power source. Give it a couple coats of paint. Turns out that I had the throttle up a little too high and that I was too liberal in my application of spray paint. Weird little bubble things appeared in various places on the motor due to centripetal force. Would kinda look cool if the pattern was more regular. There were ripples on the sides of the motor, too. So I scrape that off and give it some more coats of paint on very low speed. Took a lot of paint do away with the bumps from where I couldn't scrape off the old paint. Looks good now, at least.
While that was drying, I started spoking the Golden Motor into the 26" rim the BD36 left. Irritatingly, the spoke nipples that came with the Golden Motor were a guage too big for the spokes. They just slid around on the threads. Luckily, the spoke nipples from the old motor fit the new spokes.
Spent a while (like 2 hours) figuring out/screwing up/finishing spoking the Golden Motor into the new rim. Will true it tomorrow, because it's 1:00AM as it is.
Leaving the BD36 to dry overnight. Should probably get some clear-coat to spray over it, because the black paint (enamel) chips off kinda easily.
I see what happened to the BMX, though. Something VERY heavy got dropped on it. Whatever it was managed to squash the back wheel so much that the spokes bent. I'm gussing it also damaged the freewheel, because I was in Wal-Mart again today (to pick up some Slime and another Wii Wheel) and was messing with the same bike I bought. This one's freewheel worked fine.
So the BD36 is going in the back. Have to figure out a way to keep the pegs...Prolly just grind out the holes a little...
