    There should be a ton of Nisi clinchers about, they were spec'd on a lot of higher in bikes in the late 80's and early 90's

    Very interesting. I always thought of Nisi as a dominant of the 70s, like Super Champion. I had no idea they were still running. Nisi was the choice of Merckx. I have some knowledge of Galli because they shared some of the manufacturing for Spidel groups, French bikes being a great interest of mine.

    Coming back to my earlier post, can anyone suggest a model that would have been from the C-Record era? Campy Omega is very promising (but oh boy, that long wait for NOS ones, and then to find that they're 32h...). Thanks for your ideas.

    This is the way to go, period. Omegas are the top-end rim, much lighter than the other Greek-lettered rims, and I honestly see way more 32s than 36s around. Just get a wheelset with a decent brake track used. I had a half dozen leads on 32s when I needed 36s - eventually I gave up and went with silver Open Pros instead for my silver de rosa.

    The guy that I bought the wheelset from had to have the rims shipped from London from some shop.
    these aren't the prettiest, but a Gun bluinf touchup pen would do wonders
    If your interested I'll with hold my bidding urges!

    Campy Omegas are nice with C Record hubs. I have them on my G. Motta , they are semi aero rims.

    And yes clinchers ( I normally don't ride clinchers).

    I also have the tubular version with C Records also on my Panasonic.

    Can't go wrong with Omegas, I must have had a half dozen different wheel combinations (all Dura Ace variants) 32 and 28 hole for road racing, never had an issue with the hoops, did split a rear hub once.

    Owning these hubs is frustrating.
    They're beckoning me to use them, but lacing them to some nice rims isn't even half the problem.

    I need a worthy frame!
    (previously I have used them on a Bianchi track bike - sold - and then for a long time on a Peugeot PY10/M (1988, 531 Pro), fixed with brakes - amazing bike, destroyed by cab!)

    Cinelli maybe...
    It's alive!!!

    I asssume you've figured this out already, but the "7 point" bolt on hubs you posted in the first post:

    are Euclid MTB hubs.
    They were technically, But I found a beautiful Atala Professional with a matched pair, as well as the one I bought as a single with a track axle.
    Nice! The Euclid's were available with a solid axle.
    there is a good section in VeloBase. I suspect' like some other Campy lines that didn't take off that they were "recycled".
