The rims aren't the originals. The bike came with a mismatch of FIR and Mavic rims and so sourced the Bonty's, which were the rim brand of choice for Team Raleigh. With help of FC i've sourced some NOS Bonty/Weinmann rims which aren't the same as the red/blue spots but the BCR 1/2 type that Baker used.

It would not be unusual to have mis-matched rims as various rim makes were used. Mavics were usually available from stock in SPD as we used them on production models. FIR were a sponsor of the team. I think it was a deal that Micky Morrison did with FIR , although we never used them on stock bikes. Weinmann/Bontrager and Campagnolo were all used at different times.
