It's not unusual to have spokes get loose; I've seen it happen on metric cruisers too.
When antique-type wheels are used on modern bikes, frequent pre-flight checks
are wise. Be happy the wheels are new, after a few months the spoke nipples rust
and no adjustment is possible.... Spoke wheels are best left to dirt bikes where their
flexibility is an asset.
