As I remember doing a custom wheel like that required a brake lathe and several wheels to cut up till we got it to work..that and quite a bit of beer before we were done..used the centers from one wheel and the shells from two more to make one wheel..

Would be a lot easier to call Wheels Vintique and order a set of wheels and probably cheaper to boot..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
