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.
Too much is just barely enough.....
