I hate to see bits go to scrap. If you need to get rid of stuff I will take it and hold it for the next person.

Keep the bubble glass. Adds character, like an old farmhouse where the windows are thicker at the bottom than the top.

Free to good home. RRC Rims

Straight RRC rim. A bit dirty but should clean up with a rag and some windex. Will also fit Defenders and Disco 1s if you just need a straight rim for a spare.

Collect from me in Chilliwack.
