I have a mid 80s Gianni Motta that I built, with DA hubs. Dia compe brakes, a 7sp SIS rear DA downtube shifter, DA double front.The rims are Weinman 700 concaves... The rims make it tough to put high pressure in the tires without popping off.
I was gonna buy some rims and spokes and replace the rims.
There are sales on where I can get a complete wheel with Open Pro rims and Ultegra 6600 10sp hubs for not much more than the parts to re lace the 36 hole DA hubs.with some other Mavic rim, since the OP's are 32 hole.
My thoughts were to buy the OP wheels, and a 7sp cassette(if it will index with the old 7sp downtube) I think the spacings are the same for 7sp casette/freewheel???? Stretch the rear to 130mm.... Then sometime later buy a 10sp downtube shifter and a 10sp casette and chain.and probably a new DR.
Will this fly???,,Will the Dia compe brakes work with the new wheels???Anything else I am missing??
Any direction would be appreciated....
