John Barron (aka Velostuf) noted:

"The wheels are both laced 4-cross with "Martano" decals that read correctly from the right/drive side, and the front tire label reads correctly from the right/drive side while the rear tire label reads correctly from the left side!"

When did builders switch to showing both tire labels on the drive side? Would having both labels on the same side be considered "incorrect", or was it one of those things that varied from day to day, depending on the individual builder/tire gluer? As noted in another post, I'm working on my circa '77 Gran Crit, and might as well get it right (ps - thanks, Chuck, for your Benotto suggestion). I'll quit pestering you guys now.

Thanks in advance.
