i was wondering how could you twist the spoke to get like this i,ve tried already but all i got were little balls on it and the zoomed in picture of it has the spoke flat where it twist is there a trick to doing this and a other question i was wondering if you could spoke like the rim off the raiders bike but to fit the same hole with out expanding it and if you do how much just for the spokes

it's possible that they are square pieces of metal that are heated then twisted. then after that the end has threads cut into it for the nipple. not too sure about the other end though.

i have a couple different ways of doing both types of wheels. Most likely i would get the spokes made already and not do them myself for the flat twist ones. the raiders ones most likely would need to have the hub hole enlarged slightly to fit them in. I am going to try something out in the near future that may make these spokes easier to make and less expensive. Right now i don't sell just the spokes though.
