Default Custom wheels for Heritage Classic?

I like the looks of the spoke wheels on a Heritage Classic, but I would really like tubeless tires and easier to clean wheels. Does anyone have suggestions for custom chrome wheels that wouldn't totaly ruin the classic look, but still give me the wheels I want?

Thanks,
Jim

I don't know, somehow the Heritage is just all about spokes.
I think I would buy a set of Landmark twisted or diamond spokes if it were my bike.
Those new spokes will really make those wheels pop.

That makes three of us interested. I'd like to see whats out there also. Thought of having the originals sealed to run the tubeless. That was a popular thing about 5 to 6 years ago. Don't know what the long term results were.

I put Criss Cross's on mine from Arlen Ness. I really like them. There is a pic or two of them in my gallery.

My fav is themirror chrome HD Thunderstars...I have the black6 spokes from HD and they look pretty good, even though they aren't chrome.

I know that American Wire makes a sealed rim so that you can go tubeless... that's my plan. Plus there are tons of options to get away from stock look.
