source for spokes

Hi. I was looking for a source for some black ultralight spokes. Revo's, Sapim lasers, WS XL's. These are for a replacement front hub that had a cracked flange. Black cause the rim hub and rear wheel are all BA black. Orig. builder is not returning calls. Are there any custom builders out there who might sell off some of there stash?

thanks

Are you able to get the spokes but not in black? Have you considered using a permanent black marker? Perhaps sounds stupid but, trust me, some bike shops do this.

Does the black marker actually stick? I would have thought it wouldn't stick on the slick metal.
