I don' know, rather than cheer you one, I reccomend that you keep what you have whole, sell 'em, keep 'em but rather than wrecking them, start anew. Curious to know how many of you've experienced clicking Mavics. Pros rarely re-use.
It could be good just to start anew. The existing wheels might not be very desirable since the rear is a Helicomatic 6 speed from a Peugeot. The cogs are still good but 8 speeds would be nice.

I agree on the comment re: the braking surface might be ok now but the hubs will far outlast the older rims and eventually rims will have to go.

The wheels might not be worth much but any opinions on that would be welcomed.
This is a picture of the wheels on the bike.
