Hi, have a pair of 32h Mavic GP4's on a pair of Campy NR/SR hubs... would like clinchers for those rare days when I can park up the Cervelo, take out the vintage Colnago and go wandering for the day.

Would consider rims on their own, or full wheels (If I could find a 130mm wide, good condition, fairly light clincher which could take a 6 or 7 speed freewheel)....

If it's rims then I will get a pair of old record hubs just like the ones I have and build onto those. So far I have seen Mavic MA40's are still in production. I could get those and put the retro decals on them and that would be nice, but does anyone have any other idea's e.g. rims that would have been available around 1985 that are still available ? (Or just a good place to get NOS or secondhand ones).

ma40s started in mid 80s, and predecessor G40 which as I recall was the 700c clincher equivalent to GP4. ma2 I think was non anodised version on ma40. There are some higher end ones as well but not in that league myself........
