The least hassle, is probably the more expensive.

I got my Dommie hubs re-spoked to Morad rims. The effect was pleasing!!

My mechanic friend agreed to get me trade price on the parts and labour, but unfortunately he made a mistake. I had asked for a 110 front tye, but he accidentally ordered a rim to take a 120. It still fitted, but I had to grind away some of the fork brace that sits under the frot mudguard. I also dropped the standard guard and fitted a generic SM mudguard that needed drilling to fitted. That was no great problem.

For me the result was understated but a brilliant ride: the perfect combination for me.

Warning: the biggest hassle was the speedo. I had to buy a small speedo adaptor to convert the revs from a 17" front to give a correct speed in a speedometer designed for revs from a 21". The adaptor was a small ally cube with gears inside: cost me £70!!! But at least my bikes mileage stayed accurate.

Enjoy the end result

I had a 17" wheel made from a dominator hub and then fitted a FMX rear which needed no mods.
I've now got a complete FMX fork set up with a front wheel to fit. Not sure it's an upgrade from the original domi forks but it does look better.

70 quid for an adapter? Another 40 and you can replace the entire cockpit with a new, digital one.

I assume you mean the likes of a Trailtech?

Problem is that you lose the mileage recording, and £40 was still £40 in those days!!
