So my spokes are a bit crappy. Tried cleaning them up with de greaser, alloy wheel cleaner, tar remover to no avail. I think they need stripped and redone.

Anyone had theres done professionally?

Anyone got a non standard wheel? Id love to stick the solid fatboy style on

Cleaning - not sure
Custom wheels - will cost you thousands...nobody manufactures customs for our Intruders due to shaft drive and God knows what other reason. I think just one member has custom ones and they were stupidly expensive.

Shady, have you considered cleaning the spokes up with a dremel and scrubbing / cleaning attachment? If they are to pitted then the next possibility would be to have new spokes fitted. From there on, consider having them powder coated. After that, buy new wheels.

or chromed - even better ( but quite expensive I'd guess )
