Where can I get a rim laced???

I know this seems like a stupid question, but who close to Huntsville laces rims??? I need my Warp9 rear motard laced to my factory hub. 36 hole hubs, and the stock hub holes will need to be drilled larger... I spoke to 2 Yamaha shops, and well as a custom cycle shop with no luck. Come on now, I know you guys don't buy new wheels evertime a hoop gets bent. Any help or direction on a good shop would be really appreciated. I am new here in Texas, so don't kill me, back home it was only a drive down the street.

try to contact a "custom harley" type shop or search on "www.supermotojunie.com" and do it your self. i've done several wheels, they aren't that difficult. a few random but normal tools will help complete the job. automotive jack stands, a long extension, screw driver and a spoke wrench will get you going in the right direction.

I lace wheels at Motorcycles Unlimited. I'm not a big fan of Warp 9, because of their quality, but.there should be no problems lacing it up for you. We are a sponsor on here, and located in north Houston, off of FM 1960. What brand spokes do you have?

The spokes I have are the ones that come with the Warp9 wheels. I have a 98 WR, the year they still had the 20mm axel. The hub they sent me was for a 22mm axel. It really wasn't Wrap9's fault, it was the company I bought them through. I guess making a sell was more improtant the the riders safty to them. Check your pm box, and thanks for the info....

Going to call Ironhoarse today. Gullo, I will have to pass on that, the 3 things I have gone there for have been a nightmare, plus I called them yesterday and they don't do them. Thanks for for help though.
