Hello; I have a CWC front wheel and the factory original Dunlop rear. The front one has the chrome peeled off and is too rusty; the bike was in that condition when I bought it.
The spokes are SS Buchanan s. In the front I have two discs.

I see that the normal procedure is to remove the spokes then send the wheel to the chroming shop.
My doubt is:
When I put back again the spokes; how do I know the off sets to have the two discs right? Even with the single disc in the rear? The rear wheel seems that have more off set to one side...

The spokes alternate in the usual way but the rim dimples do not.

Assuming it has the standard T140 rear wheel rim there should be three dimples in a line on the left/drive side and one on the right or what's called a 3x1 dimple pattern so the 'three' must go on the left/drive side.
