Hi Woody,
I am trying to build a 19" front wheel for an older KTM set of forks and would like to buy some spokes to suit, from you if you can provide them?
This might be a standard spoke, but I can't figure it out.

The hub I have is a 36H, 17mm axle, KTM hub (for WP50 extreme forks) which I am pretty sure is in Jap spoke pattern (my 21" stock wheel for these forks with what looks like the same hub is Jap pattern- but I don't know how to tell if this bare hub is the same- assuming it is).

The rim is a "J 19X1.85" 36H Excel, Jap pattern- originally described as a rear rim suitable for a range of smaller Jap bikes.

Holes for the spokes by my closest measure
hub = 5.1mm
rim = 8.7mm (same size holes as a spare 'ktm' 21" excel Al7 rim I have)

Are you able to sell or recommend a set of spokes to lace this together? I would probably prefer stainless, but will take what I can get.
Shipping would be to Australia.

here are a couple of photos and extra info below.

This front wheel is actually for my R80G/S for the fork swap I have done on it- I've got a set of 18" rear 21" front wheels for knobbies, and this 19" front wheel will be for road-oriented dual purpose tyres and matched to a 18X2.15 rear wheel.

Thanks heaps,
