WTB - Araya 700C front wheel

I'm looking for a mate to this rear wheel - From a '86 Schwinn Super Sport -
Would like to find a complete FRONT wheel, in decent shape.
Thanks

Araya 700C, clincher type, ideally, with a logo like this:

Looks like an Araya SS-40 rim, if that helps any.

Can you share some pics/description of the hub also? I have the Araya rim off my 1987 Steve Bauer Chinook that is mated with a Suzue sealed hub.

I don't have the front hub to show - The bike came with the rear only .
The bike is a 1986 Schwinn Super Sport , and the rear hub is a Shimano 600 EX small flange, sealed bearing, 36 spoke.
The rear Araya clincher rim is polished looking - NOT matte finish, and you can see the cross section shape, in my photo.

I guess I'd need to see what you have, to see if it might be a good enough match.

Thanks

I have that exact rim, but it’s a rear wheel. If you want just the rim I will strip it down.

Let me take a little longer, to see if a complete wheel turns up.
But, if not, I might well take you up on the offer - I'll let you know.
Thanks

That sounds hopeful !
The bike is so perfectly original otherwise, that I'd like to see if i can match the rear wheel exactly.
Please let me know if you have one.
Thanks

I believe the hub should look something like this :


The Shimano spec sheet for '86 calls the hubs "sealed bearing", but they look like cup and cone to me.
