The wheels on the 1954 R67/2 I'm restoring are full hub, aluminum rims with cad plated spokes. Chris Betjemann in his new R51/3-R68 restoration manual states the R67/2 had chrome plated spokes. Does anyone know which is correct or are both correct?

Spokes are chrome after WWII

Hi,

The spokes on R67/2 are for sure chrome. I think that all the Post War BMW's through 1969 have chrome spokes.

Jeff,

I just scraped off 50 years of rust and crud. Lo and behold there are still traces of chrome there. Thanks again.
