Just go to http://www.buchananspokes.net/about/about_us.asp" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; They will make you any spoke you want. For that matter just send the whole thing to them and they will lace and true it to. As far as axels go Performance Machine. They will fabricate anything ya need. Bob L

Darryll
A big help for your project would be to get a repair manual and a parts manual for the year bike your working on.
They are easy enough to find. You'll use them over and over.

ok so some people are tired of my questions i think but i have another one...maybe its been answered but i havent seen it. i know that this rear end drum brake is from a honda but my question is...does one of harleys rear drum style brakes actually lace to the drum brake and NOT to a hub??? ive research and they seem to all have hubs
