Rusted Spokes, Replace or Clean and Go?
Continuing my work to bring this 76 Bonneville back to safe riding condition I am replacing the rear wheel bearings and tire. Here is a picture of the rust found, mostly on the nipples. How do I decide if the whole wheel is shot, just replace the spokes or simply clean, reassemble of go? The outside of the rim looks fine, minor surface rust, some light rust on nipples, no cracks or bent areas.
