I have these on an old bike from the mid 90's but can't find any info on them, other than to guess that they are precursors to the MA 2's

Anyone have anything they can add?

Yes Mavic MA's are very similar to MA2's, do they have single or double eyelets?  MA2's (made famous by Jobst Brandt's "The Bicycle Wheel" book, which created a shortage) were a double-eyelet box-section low-profile clincher aluminum rim.  Nothing fancy, just classic styling and sturdy build, about 480gm I think.  Your MA's are almost the same ( I am vaguely remembering that i think they are single eyelet rims, not double-eyelet, which is why Jobst recommended the MA2 instead of the MA).

I have read that the MA's were single-eyelet as well.
