I'm looking for a rear wheel for a 78 XL 100. The stock wheel is badly rusted (not just surface) and a few of the spokes are broken. Of course the OEM wheels are no longer made and all the aftermarket wheels I can find are sourced from Asia (taking a month or more to ship/receive). I've been on eBay and found one that's barely better than the one I already have. My question is, will any 36 spoke 17x1.85 wheel work (say from a Suzuki)?

Thanks for your input. For clarity, I plan to only use the rim if it's compatible. I'll use the spokes and hub/brake assembly from the XL.
