It was fun putting this together. Originally I bought some 28 hole 24" Ritchey Vantage Comp rims from Jeff at First Flight/MOMBAT as he was sitting on some...but many of you know the age old attempt at finding period correct 28 hole hubs is nearly impossible and if found likely to cost you a second mortgage or first born. I did find some newer 28H Deore hubs but they were '00 or newer era. Then I found an old BMX shop sitting on a bunch of 24" Araya RM-20's...double wall, a tad heavy but bomb proof so I grabbed a pair.
