Is there anyone that makes 19" rims after market for the light weights ? I've seen the 18"size.

I try to review all the new vendor offerings every month to see what is available and who has it. I have not seen or heard of anyone that has new 19 inch rims.
The new/ available 18 in. rims are exceptionally well made and chromed but were produced with oversized nipple holes. Your options for 19 in. rims are good
used and not so good used.

Duane Taylor, (well used, a bit rusty, no oversized holes)

Actually the holes aren't oversized on those 18" repop rims, but the repop nipples are undersized. Stock Harley spoke nipples work fine, as well as Buchanan spokes/nipples. I had a few of those 18" rims from Dixie. I bet I have a decent 19" rim out in the barn tho

I need two complete sets of spokes and nipples for the 19 inch rims on my 1954 ST 165. The original spokes were made with a double tapper where both ends were thicker than the middle section. I would prefer stainless steel. Does anyone know where I can find these?

Buchanans is the only place that has them, but they are like $400+ a set
