I spoked more than 1000 BMX Wheels so far and didn't even try to make a Motorcycle wheel yet. Had one broken spoke so I replaced that with an old one out of another old wheel. Didn't take the tire off so after lots of hassle I got the nipple and spoke in and of course: # 2 broke, then #3, #4 and you guessed it right: # 5 also broke at the rusty nipple. So tire off and start all over again. Its easier than a BMX Wheel cause you don't have to cross spokes and you have two rows in the hub flange. Rim is out of shape so have to straight that up first. Easy fix is costing me a whole morning.
