Subject: [CR]Wheels FS, Campy, Fiamme Yellow Label

I have a pair of wheels for sale, Campy low flange, 36 hole, 120 mm spacing, straight QR levers. The rims are Fiamme' yellow label, the labels aren't perfect but good, and laced with Rodelli black laquered spokes and alloy nipples. I started to clean them up to sell at the Cirque but they're grungy enough that I decided it wouldn't increase the value enough for me to do the work, but a really nice period set of wheels that were hung up sometime around 1975 and just sitting since then. Its got a pair of Cycle Pro 270s on them, only one holds air with original Clemente cement, the red goo that's admittedly a B**ch to get off. The spokes have a surface scale but seem to clean up ok. The hubs have not been repacked, but are running smooth. The wheels are round and true, and there are no dings in the rims, good for a period '70's restoration. I even have an intact Huret belt drive cyclometer on the front hub, and I'll throw in a spare belt.

$125 plus the cost of actual shipping or I can deliver them to the Cirque. And I'll throw in a Regina ORO 13-17 straight block in the brass (bronze?) finish. It's never been used, but had been mounted and could use a polishing as well. I couldn't push one of those around here if my life depended on it, but it sure looks cool on a bike.

I'll be happy to take some closeup photos if anyone is interested. Please respond off list.
