i used to have some mags. im not sure whether they were retro or not. i cant find any pics of them though. i was wondering if someone could help. they were black with x-mags written on them. very heavy (steel?). they may have come from a huffy bmx. they were 3 spoke mags. the spokes tapered bigger towards the hub. they were two piece wheels, the braking surface and spokes, riveted together. any clues?
