i am converting an older nishiki that had 27 x 1/4 wheels on it. do you all see any problem with getting some new 700c wheels for it? thanks!

no but your brakes may not reach.

Just brake reach. 700c is slightly smaller. Like 4mm in radius.
it will lower your bottom bracket about 4mm and if you have brakes your brake pads with need to move down about 4mm to accomodate.
excellent i assumed that would be only problem. thanks!
