have a set of GSXR750 forks and a wheel but its a 3 spoke.

And the 16" wheel looks chunky.  a 17 would add to the spindleness.

If I wasn't throwing all my time and money at the Spondon, I'd get BFT yokes for GSXR forks but fit the 16 blade wheel and try to get the radial brakes to work.

Ed did something similar on his Turbo Blade ( soon to be in SFr magazine...feature bike with studio shoot)

BUT,.....time and money being spent on the Spondon at the moment.  So I'm riding it this year, then maybe rip it down next winter

So the Sponnie is still progressing. Nice one.
