Mavic 500/550 wheels built with Galli Paris Roubaix rims, the hubs hailing from France and in production during the 1970s. Made from aluminium/steel and weighing in at 1.8 kg - incredibly lightweight for a pair of wheels at that time. A fine choice for keeping your vintage bike authentic, but also great for any other compatible bike too.
If you're taking part in L'Eroica or a similar vintage event, these are fully compliant - so rest assured, the pre-1987 police won't lock you up for having the wrong wheels!
The wheels have been serviced, checked by one of our mechanics and graded as mint condition, but do take a good look at the detailed photos so you can see the cosmetic condition before you buy.
