I actually have the 1974 Schwinn Bicycle Specifications. For the P13 it just says Part No. 82 806 Rim. Just stating "rim" in the spec seems to be the style through all the bikes. In other places there is lots of detail. "Regina oro cog 14-16-18-23-26 sprockets" "27 x 1 sew-up tire and tube clement 50" etc.
