Any one have any pictures of stock spoke wheels powder coated. I recently bought a set of spokes and thought about tearing them apart and having them powder coated. I have a couple of thing is mind, what do you think?

I know a lot of people dont like spokes because there hard to keep clean but I figured if there powdercoated then you can just hose off, dry and go. I think the all black or the black hub and rim with chromed spokes would look great on a bagger with big white walls. Any and all opinions are welcome. Thanks

I vote none of the above. I would powder the spokes and inside of the hub where you cant clean. Leave the rim and outer part of the hub chrome/polished.

Chrome

Do the hub and spokes in Black Chrome and the Rim in regular Chrome.

The Black chrome will be a lot more durable than powder coat unless you live near a salt water area. Spokes flex a small amount near the mounting holes and could flake the powdercoat off.

Here are the best two photos I have of them. I didn't take mine apart, just coated them, over a year and they look like new. They still need attention, I detail them every other week or so, but just hosing them off will not be a solution for long.
