    Looking forward to the wheels coming back together with the hubs.

    I'm being super indecisive about what I should do with the rims, should I paint them or should I leave them bare metal? I was thinking it would look pretty cool if I pinstriped the bare metal. But paint with Pinstripes wood look good as well.

    Laced up the rear wheel today, I miraculously managed to lace it exactly the way I took it apart. These old wheels are laced super funky compared to new Wheels. Also decided to leave the bare steel rims, so I get the. Bragging rights of having the only completely bare Steel Twin-Bar in existence probably :D.

    Finished lacing up both Wheels, now I just have to tension and true the wheels. As well as rebuilding both hubs.

    For next build (or maybe even this one) try some different wheel lacing pattern (three leading- three trailing maybe?)
