Hi Earle, I agree, the Fiamme hard silver rim was, and still is a superb sprint rim.

I recently rebuilt my Woodrup with mostly the original Super Record stuff from 82, including the original hard silver rims which are still in exceptional condition, I also have a unused rim as a spare.

On ebay recently someone was selling a pair of the Fiamme track rims, you know the ones that are slightly angled in a sort of aero way? I had a pair in 68, my first pair of sprints [Airlite LF 28s double fixed] now I really wish I had them today!
