Hey all you wooden rim aficionados out there...
Customer came in the shop with a pair of wooden rims sans hubs and spokes today.
1 40 hole 1 32 hole
Each rim had two labels, one label was in black and said "Fairbankes Made in France."
The other label was 180 on the other side of the rim, a blue diamond outlined in red with the name "Viper" centered between "trade" and "mark."
They were in pretty good shape and the customer asked me the value, which I don't know, but I think he'd like to sell them. They look like road bike rims to me and are designed for a glue on sew up tire. Maybe 26"? Email me if this is of interest, or maybe post here if you have info I can share with my customer.
