I wouldn't consider that a MTB at all. Just the bars are similar to MTB riser bars.

I just happened to find some riser bars that have roadie grip diameter if that's what you need. Nitto B259. Might try a shopping search for them if that is indeed what you need. Pretty generous 12 sweep. They still have the 25.4mm clamp diameter, however.

Oh, as for the rims, I'm guessing this is an early-mid 80s rig and likely had matte finish aluminum rims. Those rims look kinda like Mavic 192s to me. Not sure if they are those and not sure if they're original, however. Nahh, they're probably wider than 192s.
