    Re: OEM spokes

    These are going to be nearly impossible to find in 18”. And so are the nipples.

    What’s your reason for original? Your trying to match an original patina?

    I have found 16” cad in original patina. But none in 18”. J w boone in Holland has OEM parkerized 18” that I had Toms nos parts get for me but then trying to find all the nipples was a PITA .

    If your doing an Restoration go with the bead blasted or cad plated stainless Buchanan. Otherwise I wish you luck on OEM cad original patina. I’ve looked a long time.

    I ordered a couple of sets of cad 18" spokes from David Sarafan in Florida a few years back.

    I have nipples, and 5 or 6 sets plus spares for 16" but only one set factory spokes for 18" but they are chrome, and chrome shops around here have been ruining my parts lately. I would just prefer OEM spokes. Thank you for the leads.
