Rusty Nipples

Originally uploaded by groader

The decision to re-spoke the wheels for the '74 Triumph T100R has been made. I was hoping they wouldn't need it. I removed the 30+ year old tires and tubes to find rust and corrosion (of conformity) all over the spoke nipples and inner rim. Dang.

Other than the extra time and money powder coating the rims and buying new spokes the project is going well.
Pictures of freshly painted parts ready for assembly are in the Flickr set.
