Agreed. I have been on NON-spoked wheels since I had my '74 Stupid Glide with Invader 5 spoke fabricated wheels. THAT being said, we can't deny the nostalgia wave that has sold thens of thousands of new antiques, and to many cruiser riders, that has a lot of value. They will work fine, when properly assembled. Modern bikes have had mags for decades, so the number of mechanics with spoke wheel truing skills has dwindled.
