The Orange Project: from rear to front

For the front wheel spoke conversion I've found a pretty solid rim and hub from a dirt bike. 
Yes, it's a rear wheel, but the rim width was perfect for the occasion.

The hub was the problem, too big and a bit ugly to fit the forks, so I decided to work it a little removing the unnecessary bits and shaving the rest.

After a little polishing it's time for the reassembling.

 Now it looks the part!

New bearings and test fit. Looking good!

Next: a new wheel rod
