Durability is the name of the game for most all dirt bike parts, and there is no question that Drive is very much part of this vital equation.
Buchanan Spokes History of Quality
Buchanan's Frame Shop was founded by Jim Buchanan in 1958. In its first decade of operation, Buchanan's offered motorcycle frame and wheel repair. Originally, spokes and nipples were purchased from outside suppliers for in house needs. A large supply of blank (un-drilled) aluminum rims were kept on hand. This enabled Buchanan's to quickly supply its customers with accurately drilled patterns for both stock and custom wheel assemblies. Buchanan's began manufacturing its own line of spokes in 1971 to supply its growing wheel repair service. By 1975, advances in our manufacturing ability allowed Buchanan's to sell pre-packaged spoke kits to other wheel repair shops. In 1987, Buchanan's began manufacturing Sun Rims. The versatility of these rims' unique non-dimpled construction was maximized by Buchanan's custom built drilling machine.
Buchanan's discontinued its frame straightening services in 1987. This decision was necessary to accommodate the increasing demand for spokes, rims and finished wheel assemblies for both motorcycles and cars. In short- parts like replacement spoke sets are essentially the lifeline of the bike, arguably the most critical of dirt bike parts… And we have them ALL here at BTO Sports! The Buchanan Spokes we sell here at BTO Sports have the characteristics you’re looking for in control (and dirt bike parts in general!). Evolutionary technologies such as shot-peened alloy steel side plates for high tensile strength and maximum load resistance and special gold colored finish on side plates that help prevent corrosion are just a few of the features after-market controls can provide. Of all the dirt bike parts you might need over the life of your bike- the Controls will obviously be at the top. They are the prime-timers of dirt bike parts, yet after-market Controls and their accessories don’t cost nearly as much as many of their OEM dirt bike parts brethren.
Replacement Buchanan Spokes
There are companies that not only make replacement dirt bike parts, but also enhanced dirt bike parts. The Buchanan Spoke sets feature heavy-duty stainless steel, which results in longer life of the spokes and tires. Designed for the toughest off-road conditions, these spoke sets are used by most factory race teams! And that’s just one of the thousands of moto options here @ BTO Sports. These spoke sets are also bike specific for a perfect fit- a keystone point for all dirt bike parts. So please, you can take our trusted word for it when it comes to all dirt bike parts sold on our site, and that certainly includes the Buchanan spokes.
