Who out there sells or refurbished Hayes wire wheels? I need to replace one or two spokes.

Thanks for any advice.

David, when you get your spoke, there can still be problems. If your broken spoke is an outer one, replacement is easy, as are inner front spokes. Inner rears are a different kettle of fish.

To replace a rear inner spoke the wheel must be pulled. To fit the spoke you will have to bend it to thread it into place, as much as a U shape at times. Then it has to be straightened out again once threaded into place. The spokes are tough to bend and tough to straighten out again, but it can be done. I have one to do on my chocolate van at the moment.

Hope this helps.
Allan from down under.
