Looking for a excellent quality wheelset for an Orange E3 build with V Brakes
Either Mavic 717, 517 or similar on Hope Hubs or XTR
Not stuck on any particular year but as a mid 90's bike should look right, Im 13stone and the bike will not be treated too hard
Prefer all silver but lets see whats out there

Thanks for the offer, seems a more than fair price but I'm after a set in near perfect condition, good luck if you decide to sell

So still looking

I've got some GT Hadley silver on XC717 black rims.
They are these ones but I've replaced the rims with NOS XC717's back and front.
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=204808&p=1546770#p1546770
The rims have around a mile on them as they were built a while ago but I've been using others.
Yours for £160 posted.

I'm not sure of the exact year, but I'm sure someone might help out here, but I have some Orange/FIR R1 rims on STX Hubs, that I think are 95/96 orange OEM
