New 40h 27" Clincher Rim?

Know of any source for a quality, new 27" rim, 40h? I'm riding on an Araya rim that's nearing the end of its useful life.

Several 40h rims are available in 700c, but I'm not sure about 27". Perhaps the Sun CR-18. I suppose you could lace up a 48h 27" Velocity Dyad to a 40h hub.

Whoopie, Velocity Synergy 27" 40h. Pricey at $84, but it's not like I have an easy option. Thanks for the Velocity idea.

I've been looking on FleaBay now for a 40 hole Araya, 27" rim now for at least 2 months and have not seen one come up. It is a very challenging combination to find, especially period appropriate (80's/90's)!
