FYI,,,well that is really odd,,most every rim has at least the width x diameter and ususall the date of manufacture....
it could be a generic rim used by an oem bike builder for off road use... the DOT usually demands the above info size n date
single signature excels are found on oem bikes,,the double signature stuff and the A-60 line are aftermarket extra song 7000 series rims.
the aftermarket rims pre-drilled for certain model bikes will usually have a code on them... the rims that Buchanans and several other wheel builders sell only have the size stamped on them because they arrive undrilled/punched and we custom drill them for the application ,,, lace patterns and nipple sizes we choose.
