Need wheel info

Stumbled across a set of wheels that I purchased two years ago. Rims are Mavic MA40 laced up to Suntour Sprint LF hubs with Suntour sealed bearings. Condition is excellent. So what do I have here? Any info is appreciated. Seller was in San Diego, could have been a BF member, maybe?

sounds like nice wheels. The ma40 was the standard workhorse rim for years and years, and the suntour sprints were nice sealed bearing hubs - they were kind of second in line behind superbe (cyclone didn't retire, though...actually lasted beyond the sprint groups, i think). should be excellent riders. 32 hole?

36 hole, 126mm spacing on rear. I was also wondering if any bikes came equipped with them. Thanks for the info.
