Default Vintage Water Bottle

I sold hundreds of vintage water bottles over the last few years (ebay member lewisfoto) including the Fat Chance one attached here. Perhaps someone on this site bought it?

Also I would be interested in purchasing one of the repops.

Hi eveyone.

Speaking of bottles, I noticed my 1990 Yo Eddy has different water bottle cage holes. The down tube holes are a bit larger than the seat tube ones. Is this common?

Thanks!

A repair job with what was on hand rather than the right part? H2O bosses are a pretty common failure on bikes.

False alarm. The holes are the same size. However, 2 of them were filled with a very thick dust, because of the powder coating, I guess.
Thanks for the help.
