Chuck Schmidt asks: <One exception on the aluminum rims: Scheeren wood-filled rims (small blocks of wood inside the rim placed at each spoke hole, made from late 30s through the early 70s (I guessing). Weinmann took over production of Scheeren I think. Possibly there were other brands too? Did Freebairn (sp?) in Australia make some or market them? Anyone?>

I have some Spence Wolff built wheels on my 1960 Cinelli that are wood filled clinchers (Thanks, markp!) They were manufactured by Mephisto...

Cheers, Mark Ritz visiting Seattle, WA for some vintage car racing today...
