i gotta 'me-too' this one. dale is correct. you can tell from the lug interior that it started life as a pressed steel lug, albeit a blank, unadorned one. it is not two cylinders welded together to 'make a lug', as the french sometimes did. what is shown is custom cutting. if i'm wrong, then everybody at le cirque-i'll give you free red twizzlers. that's a major sacrifice for me. e-RICHIE
