    Yes. Had my rims and hubs powder coated in Satin Black and I rubbed down and sprayed the spokes in Hammerite Smooth Silver.

    I had my rims powder coated satin black as well. I never reuse spokes bicycle or motorcycle so they are new and shiny as well.

    You've got a very good point, but the price of new spoke kits in the UK was ridiculously expensive unfortunately.

    I keep a Craigslist add running looking for basket case TWs. I'm hoping to snag a TW with black rims for the Black Widow.
