If your wheels match (same label on Ft. as on R.) they're a solid set of wheels, built by WheelSmith in Palo Alto, CA.
The hubs are probably Maillard (French made)... good old school quality. Wheelsmith never skimped on components.
Mavic MA-40's were (and are) classic, durable rims, and for years were the standard for box section rims.
With the FW R. hub they would make a good set of SS wheels for a cheap town bike.
