Strange 27" Araya Alloy Rims

I have had these rims hanging in the basement for about 5 years and putting them on a bike that is going to local swap meet. Probably not too valuable, but a bit rare I would guess. Laced to early Shimano high flange hubs, solid axles front and back with Sugino wing nuts on the front hub. Came on a aluminum framed 1972 AMF Roadmaster Elite made by Bridgestone in Japan.
This link to 1960 and 1970 araya catalogs has the rim, but not in 27":

Anyone seen these rims before?
