I am building a 73 triumph bobber and took apart the rims to paint. aomebody told me you cant reuse spokes. Is this true. I am trying to keep this build as low budget as possible and it seems like this thing is nickle n dimein me to death.

chances are you are going to run out of threads when you try to tighten up the spokes, they stretch.

Thanks for the quick reply torch. Not really what I wanted to hear though. This god damn thing is keeping me up nights thinking about shit. I was just laying in bed for two hours thinkin about it. Gotta get up in 4 hours for work. Figured I might as well just get us and ask then lay in bed wonderin.

you could grab a die and add more threads if you really want to nickle and dime it.

Replace them, I know it sucks but you'll be glad you did
