Group; In 1977 and 78 I went to school in Switzerland. Did a lot of riding including some with a french club out of Mulhouse. A couple of the french guys were riding top end Peugeots. They had clinchers and the rims were 17mm. They were narrower than the more popular Rigida 13-19s. To this day I could swear they were Mafacs not Mavics. Of course we are dealing with a memory from almost 30 years ago.

So .... Mafac 17mm rims.

1) Does any one know anything about those rims? 2) Can they be acquired?
