Stunning, and I have absolutely no doubt even more so in person. Pics don't do that color justice.

Those wheels pop it out. Look a bit like polished Ypsilons. Make and model?

I agree...when the time comes for me to get serious about redoing paint on my bike - a Laser-esque blue is my plan

Thanks! OK, but you've got to promise not to tell anyone, 'cos everybody who sees them thinks they are some kind of high-end Italo/Euro goodies, so I usually just deflect the question...

They are built out of bits from Chinese OEM suppliers that one of my riding buddies who went to Asia a lot on on business trips got for me at factory back doors. At the time I was contemplating building an ultra-light, and of course - very expensive wheelset, but was concerned that the low spoke counts I was leaning towards would not hold up to my daily riding. So when he told me he had connections to get me the parts to build these wheels that I could use as a "test-bed," for next to nothing...I was thrilled. Now its 4+ years later and they work and have held up so well (and I do not baby them at all) that I just keep riding them and my original plan is pretty much forgotten.
