NOS rim, NOS hub & new spokes obviously.

Anyone with matching rear hub and skewers please help out.
I've been posting wanted ads for months.

Thats a helluva wheel. Can't help thinking I'd prefer normal 3 cross lacing but hey!

That is quality!
How did you manage to get the spokes those colours?

Thanks gents.

The spokes are titanium, and ordered that colour with the purple nipples.
Had a bit of a wait as they came from the states.
Worth it though I think.
Just need a matching rear hub so I can have a matching pair.

That is a sweet looking wheel 8)

Good luck with the rear hub though. I don't know if they were crap and broke a lot or it was just because they were after-market and people only ever upgraded the front hub but they seem to be hellish rare, eBay always seems full of fronts, rarely a rear.
Thinking about it, if no one bought rears back in the day and assuming the fronts and rears were made in equal amounts there must be sheds full NOS lovliness somewhere...

If you were to be pedantic The Ti colouring of the spokes would run into a blue hub.

Not the same I realise but like minds and all that!

You can get spokes like these, and every colour and pattern you can imagine, for bmx. Fair boils my blood it does. Why only bmx when there's lots of mtb riders who'd love a bit of gaudy bling.
