Looks like the spokes are a bit short. With alloy nipples, you want them to at least reach the screwdriver flats.

1978 Eisentraut. Coolest pump peg ever. And the seat stay attachment isn't too shabby either.

Owner & co-founder, Cycles René Hubris. Unfortunately attaching questionable braze-ons to perfectly good frames since about 2015. With style.
