Don't you need some kind of special equipment to respoke a wheel?
Seems like it would be awfully easy to end up with an eccentrically
rotating rim if you didn't have some kind of jig to keep the rim
and hub in alignment.  I bought plenty of $35 junkyard MGB wheels
in my youth, but it seems like all the hassle of doing this type of
work yourself isn't worth the ~$150 a new wheel costs.
