that was mighty sick and very educational. I think it might be cheaper to purchase a certain deep wheel than to do this. I imagine they would char about 80 bux a wheel or so. If I had the money I think I would definitely go this route though!

You can get charged anywhere from $500-$1000 depending material used and man hour labor usually around here is about $95-$120 an hour.

The material material wasn't thick enough gauge material to match the wheel thickness, chances are it wasn't the correct type of steel to match the wheel, and he it wasn't done with any sort of precise instruments. It seems like it would ride fine, but don't ever hit a pothole, big speedbump, or expect it to balance correctly.

Something deep honestly. But I would like something that isn't wide spread. I was looking at replica TE37 but they are hard to find a pair.
