The original eyelets went right through to the inner wall of the rim, I couldn't find any like that so the new ones are sit on the outer rim wall.

They look excellent with the polished rims! Are they a bicycle specific product or are they a general craft eyelet you've sourced in the right size from somewhere ?

Please don't say Spotlight. That place is Bunnings for women. It does more than frustrate me; it scares me.
Do you enjoy talking in circles? Love arguing over silly semantics with like minded people?

I got them from ebay uk. They are not bike specific just regular eyelets.

Beautiful looking bike. Can I ask where you sourced the fenders from? I'm currently fixing up a late-80s Shogun Alpine GT and I reckon some fenders like that would look nice.

Thanks for that. Something for me to consider!
