A vintage tubular wheelset 36 hole.  Not perfect but  unlike most sets we see, the wheels look quite true!  Here we have Shimano DuraAce black hubs with vintage Robergel Trois Etolies spokes on Fiamme rims.  The rim labels are not present, but we're pretty certain these are Ergals.  That explains why the are straight and have the distinctive Ergal rim sound.  Ergals tend to stay pretty straight, unless you hit one hard enough that it can crack or shatter.  So not for real heavy folks, but over the years ourselves and many others have had great luck with these.  They seem to stay truer better than the heavier reds.

 

The price includes shipping to the lower 48.  They do need a bit of attention though.  The rear hub is set for 126mm which is wrong as the axle is only long enough for 120mm.  Our dishing tool is off site as we write this, so its possible when you restore to 120 you may need to re-dish.  The hubs are not quite as smooth as we like, but might just be adjustment (these hubs are usually pretty robust).  There are no skewers.  We'd double check tension on these as the non drive feels low (maybe that happened if the wheel was dished to 126?).  But the price with shipping gets you a nice pair of vintage wheels to work with and get your vintage bike ready!
