Grey anodized Mavic G 40 clincher

Looking for one to replace the G 40 presently serving as my rear wheel on my '86 Raleigh Grand Prix.

The original was bent a few days ago when the rear wheel came out of the dropouts during high load and slammed into the chainstay. Luckly, I was just pulling out when it happened.

I was succesful in truing up the wheel, but it required a new drive side spoke under considerable tension to hold it in place, consequently, there are a number of semi-loose left side spokes - not particularly something to give me much confidence.

Take care,
