Aw man, that is cool. Really changes the personality of the bike in a good way. Not that the bike isn't cool with the factory wheels but... Where can you buy those and how much are they? Asking more out of curiosity than anything. Seems likely there's another bike with spoked wheels from the factory that would swap over without a ton of trouble and not break the bank.

You can read about the build here

Long Termer: V-Strom 650
No abs with the Rad hubs if that matters to you.

There is a thread around here that has a link to wire wheels built by a Euro manufacture that retains the ABS and are tubeless.
Here ya go.

Shucky Dang, only a few decades ago cast wheels were unheard of. If I put spoke wheels on my old Wee, I'd have more invested in wheels than the bike. It just isn't right!

Spokes look nice, but not for that price! I gotta have tubeless, and I gotta have my ABS, plus I really don't do any rough stuff so I don't need em

I love my Glee, but there's no way in hell I'd spend $3,500 for two spoked wheels. If I wanted to bang around on single track I wouldn't take the Glee anyway...
