I had a set handbuilt that came in at 1609 grams with rim tape for $385. 28-hole Velocity Aerohead on the front and 32-hole Aerohead O/C on the back with private-labeled hubs from the builder. Weight, BTW, was my number-two priority after strength.
Anyway, the point is that it's an easily achieved goal for any competent wheelbuilder.
