Discuss: Custom Spokes made somewhere?

I cant find the replies (if any) to the question of where a person might get or have some spokes made? (was sherco 50 spokes needed).

RYP called me back he cant get them, and he cant find any at his shop/warehouse.

So please, anyone have knowledge where to get some made? I have spoke and nipple, but the spokes seemed to break where it hooks to the HUB, at roughly 90 degrees.

I can ask bicycle shop near me, but I think I have one of the ONLY Monty trials bikes in 200 mile radius, it has much skinnier spokes and of course they are about 19 inchesl long, where I need some 6 inches long.

TIA.

Orlando Colander in Buchs Switzerland, can make all kind of spokes and nipples, even nipples in aluminium.

Very good quality and very priceworthy, he made me a complete set of stainless steel spokes with aluminium nipples, the spokes are even weight reduced, the diameter gets smaller behind the curved part of the spoke.

+ 1 on buchanans. Wasn't real cheap, but it was a very smooth transaction, and a nice product.

can you believe it? Buchannon says the spokes are too small, they cant do anything under 3mm thick (10 gauge), these are 2.63mm thick (12 gauge).

Called webcyclery, they are too big, they dont/cant do anyting bigger than 16 gauge...

dang

I dont know what it costs to call the places overseas, so I sent a place an email... could use help overseas help I guess.

I cannot believe 12 gauge is such a bastard size, lol.

Custom Spokes made anywhere?

You can drill the hub and rim out to the 10 gauge size.

Hey Sting - if you use them, make sure you let us know how things go. Looks like an awesome resource for spokes.

My pleasure to help. I must be honest though, the only thing I did was run a Google search for "12 gauge spokes" and this was the first link that came up.

UPDATE: well, I posted this as we were trying to fix 2 sherco 50's, and the gasgas 50, to get ONE back to my neighbor kid (we got to keep him practicing so he is ready for August event, you know. and we're about to get busy as hell around the farm, so was trying to finish stuff now.

Well ran into my welder buddy, and asked what he thought about cutting 1/2 inch out of the spokes I sourced from Honda Express junk pile... he thinks he got them, and should be full strength (used a tig, you cant even tell where they are welded now after he got done. I will get to see if they work/last.

If these fail I will be getting in touch with that guy in missouri... 1st.

BUT, I got a reply as well from overseas, the guy was fabulous in replying and covering a few questions I asked, and pointed out more I would want to know about getting spokes made that I need. for those not in USA I think it must be a class act shop, most mechanics answer with 10 words or less without covering what you ask, lol.
