    Those are the caps for the front of those tubes. @Old Scool makes those, and he’s great at them. His aluminum caps go on all my Huffy restorations that take them.

    I need the little caps in the back. The are round-ish. This is a bad pic, but you can see them in primer.

    I'll take a pic of my blunt caps on my rail frame in the morning...I don't think they fit as flush as what's in your pic. I was going to drill them out and replace them, maybe I need to think of a less destructive way to remove them :grin:.

    I don't know if these are factory...

    ...but, on closer inspection, these are made of the rare and exotic material known as... plastic.

    If you can't find any real ones...I could make some.

    I used some Schwinn seat clamp bolts on my neverending OCC project...
    Just cut the heads off and JB Welded them in. Maybe you could use some chrome button head bolts?
    Just brainstorming.......
