After having a look around it seems the rear is a hope ti glide from the early 90’s and the front a ti glide fatso from mid to late 90’s.

Feel free to correct me, thanks

Thanks Mark, I just found that exact post!

The wheels seem to have titanium rainbow spokes laced to a 217 front and 117 rear rim both ceramic.

Super light wheels

Sound like a really nice set of wheels. Hopefully the rims arent damaged or worn and you can keep them together.

Yep what mkone said, just got to watch where the red meets the ti as they are prone to cracking.

The rear rim looks a little dipped from brake wear but the front is super clean.

I might have to sell them though, I need some funds for my sons bike.

I’ll get them off the bike, clean them and post some pics at some point, thanks for your help Mark

Check the flanges carefully, these nuggets have the worst crack habit...
