Buggered if I know but I once bought a new Montesa that had alloy nipples, useless as tits on a bull if you will pardon the pun.

What abut Parkerised steel, good gunsmiths do that finish.

What was wrong with them?

They are going on a street-bike so jumping and such is not a concern.

I have found some (www.radmfg.com) that look good (and are made in the U.S.A) but as I understand it Buchanans uses an "oddball" thread on the spokes so I'm waiting for confirmation that they fit.

Buchanan's has some alloy nipple at that you could get anodized at http://www.buchananspokes.net/categories/nipples_aluminum.asp

Before you get all exited about radmfg nipples be sure they come in the size that fits your rim. Nearly all Japanese rims come with holes to fit .281" nipples. British rims come with holes to fit .250" or .300" nipples.

Unless, of course, you get the rims from Buchanan's and have them drill them too.

The rims are coming undrilled from a dealer in Austria, they are Morads and apparently Spain is currently closed (the whole country is on vacation) so having Buchanans drill the rims woulod not be a problem but the concensus seems to be the AL nipples are for show and NOT for road use so I may be using SS.
