You're not getting him mixed with Mike Burrows, bike designer and inspiration for the Lotus Type 108?

There's some poor bloke somewhere called Dave Burrows now getting asked about his bike wheels :lol:

Back to the original question, are these wheels ones that were built by Giant as Mike worked with them for a while after Lotus sold them the design rights to the 108? If they are* I think they we built in the late '90s so they're long out of production. There might be problems with finding spares.

*I see a pair are about to end on Ebay
