Very acceptable would be .020 overall on both the radial and axial.

For a steel rim, .015" would be really good. They're typically not even that round. For an alloy rim, you can usually get better, but it's not really that necessary.

General question: I have laced and trued a bunch of bicycle wheels. Would a motorcycle wheel be much different other than everything is bigger and heavier?

Same concepts apply to both.

In the BSA manuals I have at hand there is no tolerance of wheel run out. When building weels I was aiming for less than 0,5 mm both sideways and radially, but as a short time owner of a 79 TZ 350 racing Yamaha, i still have the workshop manual of this bike. The tolerance for both sidways and radially in this book is 2 mm. Keep in mind this is a racer!!
Well now adays I am much more relaxed regarding the tolerances and are building wheels to 1 mm in all directions.

Just my two cents worth of wisdom

You must have taken a lot of patience with your wheel, well done!

FYI, here's a conversion chart I use for tolerances.
