Talk about all things Rat Rod Bikes.
Neither of these are the high quality of Starrett or Mitutoyo, but they would work fine for wheel truing. The high quality indicators can cost you over $100.
This is kind of neat too, but it cost more:
I tried being serious, but it was boring.
Poor Man's truing stand... flip a frame upside down, bolt in wheel. Apply masking tape across chain stays approx 1/8" from rim. Mark center of frame on masking tape with Sharpie, then mark width of rim from center mark (5/8 each side of center for 1 1/4 rim). Start truing! Make the rim match the marks and check for roundness at the 1/8 margin.
