Stock Harley spokes s^ck to clean.
They are zinc plated and if you clean off the cruddy looking zinc, they just rust. I'm still saving for a set of stainless spokes for mine.....
Ride it like you can fix it.

Well I assumed my were stainless, perhaps they're not. We'll see in a few weeks if they start rusting, but I found no evidence of rust on them to start with.
