It was one of a set of rims that Super Champion made to compete with the Fiamme Ergal Rims. Mel Pinto Imports imported them and sold them in his 3 stores. They were like $100-125 for the pair in the late 70's - early 80's. I remember them being very light and extremely durable.

1983 Palo Alo Bicycles. From the description, it was one of the early hard anodized rims.
