Dave, spoke stock is rare in lengths over 300mm. 28 inch British bike wheels use a spoke of 12-1/8" or so. You need one a little longer. Go online and purchase a 2mm rod in SS or plain steel. These can be had in 3' lengths. Cut in two and go caveman on the end and bend into shape. Cut to length and take to your local bike shop. They will roll threads on these for around $1.00 apiece. The most expensive part of the spoke will be the shipping cost of the rod. You'll have a spare to boot.

I did get 49 spokes like I need . Thanks bobcycles . But they will only work for the rear wheel . I could still use one or more spokes like the picture but they have to be 12 3/8 which is the length I need for the front wheel . I will make them if nothing turns up. Any help is most appreciated
