    I have one broken spoke on the rear of my 03 Softail, anyone know where you can buy spokes as needed? It has the 16" wheel.
    The local HD dealer only sells them complete set for the wheel, I just need one, not 140$ for the entire wheel. Thanks

    Thanks, no I was just doing a good clean up job on the bike and while cleaning the wheel found one broken on the hub end, right at the "button" on he very end, no rust on the end so I don't think its been that way very long. Thanks again.

    I have seen take off spokes on Ebay for $6.00 for a whole set. If you use a used spoke it will blend better with the other spokes.

    I agree there Bud. If it broke it was probably over tightened at some point.

    Better safe than sorry.

    Ok, I hink I'll just pull the wheel and take it to the local "wheel man" and let him do his thing....it's going to need a new tire soon anyway.....
