They're 36s (can a 38 even exist? How would it lace?). Rear appears to be a high-flange 4-cross.

"Good" rims back then were often anything but, and time is never kind to them.

And yes, I'm glad its not close to me either, also just realized the cranks look to still have the backside pedal eye inserts, pita to be sure but an added extra one none the less.
I spoke to the seller last summer but my interest faded when he said they were 36 hole 27" wheels, likely with galvanized spokes. I'm sure he'd be open to offers.
This is the same seller that has the Univega Mixte in post 67702

Mercier for $25?

Just posted:
Man's English Racer
My roommate graduated and left this. For a taller guy. The tires look older and may need air in and maybe some oiling. Overall nice condition.
I would prefer to meet in the Target parking lot.

Just the one pic:

That rear wheel likely has an Atom drum brake and is 36 hole, standard French tandem kit for the era. Note the double cable on the RH lever and the standard single on the left; one of those cables is for the drum.

Trek 300 Elance 1986

I didn't know the 300 series had Elance variants, in this case triple-butted Ishiwata (seller calls it "aluminum") tubing and a Sella Italia saddle.
I like this lightly-used one at $225.

One would want to be cautious in selecting a fork, too. The wheelbase on the Rigi is insanely short, so getting something up front with the correct amount of trail would be a good thing.

My understanding is you could do a u-turn on a Rigi just by sneezing too hard
