This is my second R20 variant - a 1972 that has been through a restomod process. Modern rims, new spokes, paint, stem, handlebars, etc. It has been painted with a "hammered" automotive finish. I added the Brooks C17 (which I won at a Tweed Ride in Indianapolis, Indiana). This bike also has a modern Richey headset (no poly bushing). It rides and handles great on these wheels!
