It doesn't matter which side the date stamps are on as the rims aren't handed but my OCD would want them on the same side if I'm rebuilding the wheels :roll: Still, these things should be taken in the round ... :tw

If I understand the dates correctly, my '75 M appears to have a '74 rear wheel rim and a '72 front with twin discs :?
Front 2G 102
Rear 4B 101
I have it wrong.....right?

Stainless steel rims and spokes on my 550J 'Yeti'. Never need cleaning.
