This rim for tubular tires probably dates from the early 1970s. This was a solitary rim which I had found in a local bike shop. Although the rainbow decal looks a bit rough, this rim was unused and any scrapes are just from many years of shop wear during storage. A nice quality polished aluminum rim with a narrow width (20.5 mm.) and a shallow profile height (11.75 mm.). Metal ferrules fully enclose the spoke hole openings at the rear and I believe those are stainless steel grommets finishing the holes. Smooth braking track (no dimples on this model) and 36 spoke holes. 350 grams. This was a premium road racing rim but not the lightest Super Champion model. It might compare to a Mavic "Montlhery" (a bit lighter than the Standard model and heavier than the Pro or Extra Legere versions of that model).

Because of my local reputation as a sucker for odd old bike bits, I was tipped off that a local shop owner would just love to unload these old rims on me - Cheaply! How could I resist such an invitation?

These still have some spoke nipples stuck inside the deep eyelet sockets, embedded in ancient dried on tire cement. They should clean up nicely.
