Woop! Not only are rim brake compatible, silver 650B rims hard to find, actual original 1970s ones are even harder to track down. These Super Champion Model (Modele) 58 rims are straight from the 1970s, untouched and unlaced, ready to build up and fit to your 26″ conversion or period correct randonneur. The brand were bought up in the late 70s by Wolber and the rims were manufactured well into the 1980s, with the label being updated along the way too. A notoriously tough (if fairly heavy) rim these 36 hole pairs will make a lovely, long-lasting wheelset.
