You can just use the 3/4 spacer and new 3/4 bearings and put them on the new wheel

Ended up just buying a new cheap 40 spoke wheel. Making spacers hopefully this weekend at a buddy's machine shop. Momentum is picking back up on this build finally hopefully no more major snags... Comparison pic of current play bike and the build progress.. Facebook reminded me it's been 3 years since I had barely a roller compared to my old r6
