for whatever its worth, you are ahead of the game with that wheel. You have spokes you can measure, so getting them should be easy. lacing a wheel is easy, but scary looking. If you already have broken spokes, you have very little to lose, it won't cost you much to replace them, and the skill you gain is well worth the attempt to fix it. You could be on the road in a few hours or a long afternoon. No matter what, this probably won't be the last spoke you break. I go through a handful every season. Wheels found in the garbage have lots of spokes that could fit. Keep your eyes on your neighbors' garbage.
