Just because manufacturers don't export goods to some countries doesn't mean they stopped production Worldwide.

And they are double wall so not even close to a 7X. They are a super 7X reissue basically, as mentioned.

Re: Repop Araya 7x rims?

They call them 570x but the label on the rim says 507x.

Double walled, with no reverse dimpled at spoke hole which make them look too modern, but they have old school style decals. Interesting for rider bikes.

I'd actually bet because they are dual wall they are probably stronger too, so they very well may be high end. They are probably quality rims, but not exactly the same.

I think these rims are the one's they used on the Retro ET Kuwahara just released a few months ago.

Super 7x were welded and in satin or chrome finish. No comparison.
