I just discovered I have 2 broken spokes on the '87 I've been restoring. The back end just didn't feel "right" and it's a good thing I took a good look at it. If you have any spokes you'd like to sell, let me know. The ones that are broken are two of the longer ones that are located on the chain side of the rim. Thanks!
TWy to make a TWip to the TWails to make some TWacks.
TW-Brian, your like the go-to spoke guy, huh? I have seen several threads where you have helped people with replacement spokes. Good form, sir! I also had two rear spokes that were broken on my '87 that I'm restoring. I chose to order a replacement rear set so I would have spares. Your continued generosity has inspired me to help others as well. Members may PM me as well if a rear spoke replacement is needed.
Good to hear that you will be able to help people out because I am just about out of my supply of rear spokes. Besides, yours are nice and shiny and mine are old and crusty .
p.s. Speaking of old and crusty, do you need any bits and pieces for your '87 restoration? See my recent thread where I am parting out an old and crusty '87. I'd be happy to help you out if I can: https://www.tw200forum.com/forum/tw2...-too-much.html
HAHA they sure are!!! When I put on two new ones I was simply unable to avoid spending several hours with a tiny wire brush in a vain attempt to brighten up the others. I like to think it helped! My bike is rather intact, however, I do have a rear turn signal that was cracked at the flex joint when I got the bike. It has since broken off and been "repaired" with black gorilla tape. It's actually holding up just fine. Went for a couple hour ride around Eagle Rock before trout fishing Tarryall - and the OTHER rear turn signal fell off! The nut came loose... so it's now cranked and loctite applied. As long as everything is working I'm sound as a pound.
Ok I hate to ask but I also would like to buy 2 sprocket side spokes and I insist on paying for them.
I just logged on to look for some spokes for my 87 as well and immediately saw this post. I don't know exactly how many or which I need, but can look later. If someone has some, I'm in the market. PM me! Glad to pay for them as well.
