The 19" front spokes are really hard to find, I had to buy a complete steel wheel just to get them... In case you don't feel like waiting for a set to show up, you could always use the 18" WL spokes, plenty nos around, just remove the park & have them cad plated. The second best thing I think, just not quite so skinny as the K/Sportster, but almost.

The length & bends are the same, here's a comparison pic I took:

I think the heavier spokes might look good too!
