Subject: [CR]Raleigh Competition, correct rims?

Friends: I recently aquired a Raleigh Competition (serial # A 538) which I am guessing to be 1976-ish based on Sheldon Brown ( http://retroraleighs.com/catalogs/1976/pages/06-76-competition.html ) It seems to be all original except for the sew ups being switched to clinchers. Any advice on what rims it should have?

I am DOUBLE pleased as this is my first collectible bike that can be made ride worthy. Lets get those Texas Vintage rides going guys, I have a bike now!
