24 holes was a common enough drilling. 20 is very much on the exotic side. The most logical application would be pursuit. They could also be used for a very light rider. Your best shot for finding rims will be modern stuff. 20 is more common today. Finding something on topic with 20 holes and a matching rim in 24 is probably not going to happen. You might be able to get a set of Ghisallos or maybe find a pair of rims that are un-drilled. A more important question is what can you do with a 20/24 wheel set once you have it? Do you know any 12 year old girls who are elite trackies? ; )
