Jerry,

The dimples or reverse dimples, do they look like this? - http://www.members.optusnet.com.au/lynnmiller/Photos/dimples.jpg

These wheels are from my wife's Coventry Eagle mixte. These are 700C clinchers. There is no name on them that I could find, so your reference to dimples made me wonder if these were also Weinmann rims. It is outfitted with Weinmann brake levers and side pulls.

Thank you,

The recent threads on Paramount original equipment and Weinmann rim options rang a bell with me. I have a "65 Paramount track bike with the Weinmann sew-up rims that are dimpled or reverse dimpled on the outside rim wall. Wouldn't these be considered road rims? Did Weinmann make a track rim? Would that have been standard equipment on a '65 Paramount P 14? Anybody got a set they would like to sell or trade?
