good place to buy 26" by 1 3/8" wheels?

Hi All, I have a 60 hawthorne/fuji (swear to god every part on it is fuji I even have fuji stamped bolts for christ's sake) but it is re branded hawthorne by marshal fields (dept store in chicago land area where I grew up). They may have added the rear wheel it is stamped hawthorne (crazy).

Anyways, I'm going to try to save the original wheels from it. But if I can't I'd need to find replacement wheels for it.. It is a 1 spd coaster brake (the back wheel seems like it is the most likely to make it). The front is a little iffy, may be able to get away with just replacing the a few spokes. Anyways if you know where one can buy wheels of this size let me know... I'm striking out.

I noticed that http://www.niagaracycle.com had a wide variety of wheels when I looked before, so I double checked, and they do have at least one option each for front and rear...

Sun and Weinmann rims. Harris will build you whatever you need. I ordered some rims for my old Raleigh 3-speed project.

26 x 1 3/8" is the 650A size.

They have a front wheel that will work. the rear wheel is a free wheel set up.. But that's a good price for the front wheel thanks. It'd be nice to find a coaster brake rear wheel 26 by 1 3/8 (not schwinn) for that price.
