Try the C&V forum. I've seen descriptions of various conversions on there.
With Tektro long reach brakes that shouldn't be a problem. I've got some freewheel wheelsets spaced at 126mm with a solid axle that should fit the dropouts.
All I'm looking for is some feedback on the bike itself. Schwinn made a ton of these bikes along with the Breeze in the Sixties. It's hard to believe someone hasn't modded one.
