    New Project: Vintage Bike restoration?

    Any idea where to find a 27X1 1/4" wheelset?

    You might find more answer in Classic and Vintage forum.

    But I recall that this site had a wheelset

    You didn't mention axle size but those are 126mm and the 1-1/4 is a tire width.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    Look for donor bike with a decent wheelset, or post a wtb in your local Craigslist.

    Here is another source:

    http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...oad+Wheel.aspx

    These are also 126 mm (6/7-speed) OLD rear hubs but could be respaced to 120 mm, the axle shortened and the rim redished if you need to. The rear is a freewheel hub and will take 6 or 7-speed freewheels as delivered or adapted to a 5-speed freewheel as above.

    As cyclist2000 mentioned, 27x1-1/4" is a tire size, not a rim size but tires that size will fit these rims fine.
