Always thought those three tidy looking bikes would look much better with black rims. Especially the Explosif.
One of the reasons I put black mavics on my 89 Fire Mountain...the other reason was that my mate, as a joke, tried to run off with my bike and fell on the back wheel...he wasn't a small chap so the back wheel was knackered.
Being yoofs at the time we thought we could straighten it...nope...then we thought we could build our own wheels...after all, how hard can it be? All the spokes are the same length, just tighten them all up by the same amount, job done....job not done, job a total waste of time, job was taken to a man that can!
But yeah I like my black rims
