Hello if I my inject my two cents here. the purpose here is get rid of you Heliomatic freewheel right?
first you need a new freewheel.
building new wheels will require you to get new hubs, spokes, and rims, plus labor. I recently had a hub rebuilt to a new rim. the rim was $35 (a great deal for a tubular Reflex) $2 ea for 32 spokes and $35 labor. you are looking at about $60-70 before you get a rim.
I would look for a decent set of prebuilt wheels. I recently purchased a set of wheels from Ebikestop.com and I am very impressed with them.
look at these wheels http://www.ebikestop.com/dimension_r..._3x-WE2727.php
hope this helps you. OH is this bike is not index shifting is it? I do not think heliomatics ever did.
