Do pre-1980 28h clincher road rims exist?

Hi there,

I have a growing addiction to lace torpedo coaster brake hubs on road rims for my city bikes. So much fun, love riding them, love servicing them, love the look when all is still from the same era. However, how back in the uk they are hard to come by. Ive found a bulk purchase of my favourite, the Duomatic's, all 28 holes.

It seems, that 28h pre-1980 road rims are pretty rare for tubular rims, and possibly non-existent for clinchers? It already feels pretty 'wild' lacing an old folding bike hub onto beautiful track frames, bringing newer rims into it is just too far, so Im wondering whether the rims id be searching for exist, before I make the investment.
