Mavic Montlery wheels

Anybody know anything about 'em? Google turned up only three or four links, none of any help.

Still learning, so any info would be appreciated.

Goose,
I have a French bike (Stella) with the Mavic Montlery wheels (25"). I too am trying to learn if the wheels or bike is worth anything. It has gone unused for about 23 years. The derailer is Campagnolo Nuovo Record. I would appreciate any leads.

Thanks
Jeff

Mavic Monthlery rims, named for a is a suburb of Paris,
and site of a race track where the French Grand Prix was held in the
1920s and '30s.
There were 2 models Route and Legere models.
Route(s) were 21.5mm in width and weighed approximately 420gm.
The Legere modewl was 20mm wide and weighed 310mm.
There were also I believe variations of the above (anodized gold?)
available.
Its a precursor of the GP4 tubular rim, very strong. Very apropos for PX10,
or other good french racing bike.

Lotek is spot-on. Those rims are classics.
