FS - Package of Five Martano tubular rims & Robergel spokes

These rims were at the back of my stash because they were dirty and had no labels on them. Over the weekend I cleaned them all up, and identified them as Martano Tipo Strada rims based on age and style. They are 700x20 and 36H. They do not have eyelets; instead, you put a washer around the spoke nipple on the inside of the rim. These were laced to Phil Wood 1st gen road hubs and Hi-E low flange road hubs, with Robergel spokes, so they date to the mid-1970s. Originally, there were six rims but I threw away one because it had a crack. The others are fine. I've put these together with their spokes, nipples, and washers into one package. I'll be listing the Phil Wood and Hi-E hubs eventually, but if you're interested in them, let me know.

Price: $150 shipped in the CONUS, Paypal F&F preferred (NYC pickup available too)
