I know, and I love it too..... but what colours to use is the great question
I decided on a red and black scheme
Came out pretty good.....

Yep correct, the old Araya 7C's made from 1979 onwards
The sidewalls have been lightly sanded back and polished

For an original set the colour is still vibrant for 30+ years,
the sunshine hubs have slightly faded over time thou....
I also have some 7X rim set too, both in red and gold
just respoking a couple sets at the mo for some more Healing rides
