Very much a standard rim on a lot of racing bikes some years back (80's?). Lots of people were unhappy when Mavic discontinued this rim.
Watch out for rust on the eyelets since this may make noises when rubbing against the spokes. So remember to give the eyelets/nipples a drop of oil every year or less, depending of how corrosive a climate you live in.
