Wanted Rigida Rims

Help! I need a pair of Rigida Clincher Alloy 27 X 1 1/4" rims.

I am restoring my wifes Peugeot PH19. It came with a set of mismatched hubs and rims. I have managed to put together a set of Maillard Low Flange hubs, now all I need are the rims.

I just built up some Sun rims into wheels; not really vintage but built up well. Nashbar has some 27 rims for cheap, look similar. Hard to find old rims these days...

Are these what you are looking for ?

They came off an 80's Peugeot...

There'a a shop selling some new old-stock rims on eBay. Check it out.

I have one identical to the example in Sixty Fiver's photo (the other of the pair has a bad flat spot). Poor cosmetics, but all there. Would trade for a hooked-bead Weinmann 27" rim, for the Rigida is presently laced up to the front hub of my Trek 610.

I got mine as a pair and the rear was ruined... I happened to have a matching hoop at the shop so laced that up to the Maillard hub.

They are nice rims (strong and medium weight) and I have some Avocet 7/8 tyres mounted up on them.

Sir,

I put the request on C&V because these would be the people who would have 20 year old rims hanging from the rafters.

Sixty Fiver, YUP! Those be the ones. I just found a new 27X1 clincher to complete my set for my new Peugeot PX10E. And I have several Blue Lable 27 X 1 1/4" non clincher rims, but I really want a set of clinchers for my wifes PH19 Mixte.

You could try looking for mid 70's Motobecanes. Mine had Rigida rims. I bought the whole bike for $35.

I just bought a set of new Weinmann 27 x 1 1/4 clincher rims from Bike Parts USA. $25 plus shiping for the pair. Let me know about the Rigida.

I could use the link to those if they're alloy rims. Sounds interesting.

I picked up a Peugeot Mixte for $25, only to find out the frame has been in a crash. So it strip down time and put the parts on another bike. Sorry - the wheels are Rigida "Superchrome" rims, but 700C. They'll make a nice cruiser bike.
