My 1968 Competition had 27 inch Super Champions on Normandy large flange hubs. Unfortunately they were not matching rims-one was a Gentleman, one was not-so I swapped them out for a matching set of Rigida 27 inch rims with the oval black label. I'm not sure this info is helpful either, but I would guess Super Champion rims were a original rim option. Jay Sexton Sebastopol, CA At 8:52 PM -0400 6/17/07, David Bean wrote:

That's not too helpful, unfortunately.

"Sprint" is a generic British term for a tubular rim. They're all "alloy."
