My question is: do any of you guys recognize the wheel or have an idea who might have built them? As you can see, they are very well done. They have kind of a unique head on the bolts that hold them together. There are about 12 points on the head of the bolt as opposed to 6 points on a standard bolt. (They are not allen head.) Maybe that will help.

If they are not recognizable to you guys, maybe you have a suggestion as to where I can send them to get some suggestions.

Thanks,

Hi,
What tires are on the back now? Do you have a low angle Pic from the rear showing what you are talking about?
