When I built these wheels I knew they wouldn't last forever. I would like to replace them in 24" with thick bricks but I would be happy if I could find a matching rear wheel for this worksman front. Anyone know where I can find one or should I just order new spokes?

Yeah I have called worksman about a set of wheels before. By the time I ship it would have been $500. The reason I went twisted in the first place is Skully has 26x2x1 3/4" tires and I can't fit the heavy guage spokes in my threading tool. I am probably just going to build a new set with standard 26" or 24" hoops so I do not have to order custom factory cut length spokes or I will just redrill and use motorcycle spokes

Skully has Atom drums front and rear and he really would be a death wish with anything less.
That's part of the reason the Beiwagenmaschine has such a monster sprocket. At wot it is still too fast to do anything but lock up the Bendix kickback I have on it.

I haven't been riding him in forever because I needed some small parts I could never find. It dawned on my today I had the same tank and a sha carburetor on the Minimoto staring me in the face this whole time.

And the mini had a better chain

I have actually ridden that little thing when I would rather ride Skully because it doesn't leak, had new wheels etc. You can tell I built Skully on a tighter budget. I realized I had $300 worth of parts on the mini I forgot about. So Skully got those
