"I may be wrong but I would guess the type of rims you seek at 36 holes

and the size 700cc will probably be unattainable. The concave rims of

this maker I suggest would only be at 40 x 32 holes and they were in 27"size. Apart from these particular Weinmann rims being concave they

had brass eyelets and the clincher beaded sides"

Nope, Doug... they existed and were quite common at least on this si de of the pond being standard issue for the Raleigh Competition GS (c. 1978-83 ): 700c, 36-holes, eyelets and clinchers. The Comp GS is, to my knowledge, unknown in the UK, I think its closest UK cousin was the Clubman series.

But the Competitions has Campy GS components, Weinmann sidepulls and those

Weinmann rims.
