Does anyone know where I could find 105 or 12 gage spokes? I need to find a set ASAP to finish this bike. The originals were trashed but the rims were good. I've already painted the rims and need spokes to finish lacing them up. NO bikeshop in town can find them. Any help is greatly appreciated!

When I built my 5-1/2 hp Monarch, I intended to use #41 chain and I wanted motorbike spokes. I found I could buy a rear wheel for a Worksman industrial bike and it had 10 ga. spokes and a large brake sprocket for good stopping leverage, and a really heavy rim with bulged spoke holes like a motorcycle wheel With my ally hub and #41 sprocket it weighed 9-1/2 lb. ! It cost me $66 Keith (trackfodder) Williams

Used these guys for my sissy bar & they do get their product out to you: http://www.southerncalibikes.com/

Thinking about ordering a frame from them.
