Mine was late 1976 and during restoration Brian Baylis advised that during that era they used Martano rims. I managed to purchase a pair from Mike Kone who confirmed Brian's information. That bike is now in the hands of a friend of Joe Bell. It was just a tad too small for me, but the real fun was the restoration of the bike.
