Have just replaced road tyres on my P11 93TA and noticed one of my wheels has three broken spokes. Has anyone any advice on a source of these spokes and perhaps a reputable repairer in Australia. I am happy to replace them myself if necessary. Best Regards, Peter Toet.

Hi Peter,

Suggest you talk to a local motor bike restorer or classic Jaguar/MG owner for information on reputable wire wheel repairers close to you.

A guide to replacing spokes is on the following link:

New spokes should be available from the following supplier:

Peter,
3 spokes are no big deal.

Remove tyre and tube.

Fit wheel to axle without tyre and tube.

Fit 3 new spokes.

Tension till they sound like the others when struck with spanner.

Spin wheel against a pointer to confirm truth. Plus or minus 1 mm is excellent.

I have done loads of bike wheels it is a straight foward spanner job.

Spoked wheels are strong and also flex a bit adding a bit to the suspension.

Have a go and you will wonder what all the fuss was about.
