Hi nice white ones.
I was told they weren’t reissues and convinced myself such, I’ll go and recheck
No I won’t put them on my Marin as it’s 100% OE, they will for now go on my Peugeot Frankenstein but really I’m saving them for something special

I remember now that I thought these were the reissue with the big writing, but then now I think I’m wrong..

Just to confirm these very rubbers were purchased by me in 1993, and are 1992 issue....I think they were from Covent Garden Cycles or Lewes Cycles; I think CGC but goodness the past is a hazy place.....

Just for confirmation....

Take a look at 1992 - PORC IIs
