Happy Holidays Jeff...
Not me with the duct taped boots, but I think I know who you are referring to. You have quite the memory.

Spoke weights.... Hmmmm..... I think I could easily make a form to build those. Conical.... Drill & counterbore a hole down the middle. Slit with a hacksaw. Winter is here & idle hands need projects.

It's getting harder to find lead weights for environmental reasons. The least expensive material I could find new was the biggest fishing weights. It won't be long before those are also outlawed.d
