I have a 49 flyer with incorrect spokes in the rear wheel. I took it to a bloke in Warrington who sorted it out for me and he makes his own spokes. My spokes had been fitted corectly on one side from the hub but on the other side the spoke head did not correspond with the countersunk hole. I’ll measure mine later and get back to you. It’s always a good idea to check the wheel for offset before dismantling. If you have not done this before, there are a lot of variables with spokes, nipples and rim type and you should go to a professional. It cost me £50 to have the rear fitted with new spokes and trued up and the front adjusted. It now looks correct. If you live in the N West I’ll give you his number, originally recommeded by the NW section of the Club
