At last- westwood rims for my 1930's bike- these are an old style rim that are hard to get around here. They still make them in India and China, where the popular bikes are based on pre-war english roadsters. But if I go to a local bike shop and say- "got any westwood rims?" they say "west-what?!"
...or my favorite customer service phrase ever; "it costs money just talkin' about it".
Anyway- finally got some + dusty tires.
I think these rims should be black though, yeah... all the steel should be blackened... hmm...
And check out the fillet-brazed head stem.

  1. Wit wil pretty rims. Thank you for your suggestion on my blog, now I keep fantasising about copper chainring guards! oh dear. I ended up just getting the original one rechromed alongside the stem headset and handlebars. The copper on my bell and seat etc will keep me happy enough ;)
