There are 2 different sets of spokes to both front and rear wheels - Inner and Outer spokes. One has approx 80 degree angle the other is around 100 degree angle (can’t remember which is which) but is easy to work out once you start. Just have to be careful you use them in correct place.

It's part of my homework, as I have a front and rear wheel to re-spoke once I get my rims back.

Just sent them off to Ash @ Yorkshire M=etal Finishers Ltd. :D :D :D

Probably me, unless I can get a guy I know local to me to sort them out.

Central wheels have got a good reputation.

You could pm (rob) zed1015 And ask him who he uses he’s in Goole ?

Link to page he has posted on

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=44515&p=370870#p370870

Might be an idea, to put a thread in the BIKE HELP section.

I used Central Wheel Components, B46 1HT. for my Z1a and Z900.
Great job, £60 a wheel.
I gave them plated spokes that were supplied by Dave @ Saisei, and re-chromed rims
Cetral also fitted tyres from their sister company Wheelhouse :)
