Hi, I’m building a mid eighties koga miyata gentsracer. I’ve almost gathered a full shimano 600ax group set I’ve got some nice 32 hole 600ax hubs but I’m a bit new to this vintage stuff so need some help and recommendations for age appropriate rims.

I’m patient, and will do my time on eBay etc, but need some help.

They must be clinchers. Thanks.

Wolber Super Champion model 58.... classic mid 80’s rim. Top draw.

Dark would be my preference. Not necessarily black though.

Blues were more exclusive and trendier, albeit one rung down on the strength/quality scale

Anyway, both are sprints, not clinchers
