    Wanted - 1 Rear spoke(short one). Yep, 1 spoke. I have the front spoke and the long rear spoke. I had to cut the short spokes off(rusty) and threw them away(dumb!). I thought that I could just call up Buchanan's and order a set of SS front and rear spokes for a '87 TW200. WRONG! They have only made a rear set for a '89. If I find a short rear spoke, I will send them the set and they can copy. They said to send the rims and they would do it all but I have re-painted the rims and do not want to have to re-paint around spokes. Also, twice the money. And I want to try to lace myself to see if I can? So if anyone wants to sell one of their rear spokes, just let me know. You will still have 31 left! That ought'a be enough to hold it.



    Thanx Much!

    87 and 89 are the same. Don't complicate it, just order.

    I have a partial set from a 2001, assuming they are still the same. I'll look around in my garage tonight.

    I told the girl at Buchanan's to send me a set of rear '89's and that I would mail the front spoke to copy but she said that it would be best to send the rims? Told her that I would let her know when I was ready to ship.



    She did tell me that the '89 has 6" & 3 5/8" rear spokes.
