Mine had Weinmann centerpulls when I got it, but I've always thought they were not original for some reason. Partly because they don't quite reach the rims (AVA tubulars)! They'd be OK for 27" clinchers, so maybe...?

Funny, I know it's an Aerospace Pro, but the top-tube decals have completely disintigrated, so how would I prove it? :-)
