I thought I was purchasing spokes for the 18"
Big Twin using a starhub at 8 1/4" long, 1/4"
from nailhead to 90 bend.
What I recieved was a 8 1/4" spoke set,but 20 have 3/8" from nailhead to 90 bend, and
20 have 1/2" from nailhead to 90 bend.
Same Wire Gauge size, nipples, even cad plate
Does anyone know what these belong on?
Thanks,
don

sounds like the spoke set you got are for
an 18in wheel but for a aluminum hub,like on the front of a newer sportster
hope this helps
