Super Champion Arc en Ciel rims

Quick question. Did the Arc en Ciel rims have dimples on the braking surface? These would be early 70s vintage.

Thanks,

Kurt

Mine don't have dimples, but I suspect they are later than "early '70's vintage".

I have two wheel sets with Arc en Ciel rims; one from the early 70s, the other from the early 80s. None of the rims have any dimpling or texturing on the braking surfaces.

I have a Super Champion rim with the serrated brake surface--just like these, but the decal showing the model is long gone.
