Hub Suggestions

I'm going to attempt my first wheel build in the near future. I'm looking for a set of hubs but do not know all that much about the different brands and qualities. Right now I have Shimano 600 hubs from the Arabesque era with the first gen cassette, but I plan to keep them laced to their current rims. I've been looking for those or the similar Dura Ace hubs. I recently lost this auction, and a similar one a week ago.

What else is out there that will be about the same quality? I'm just trying to get more options. For what it's worth, my rims are Mavic GP4 tubulars and my bike is a Miyata 912.

What a cool coincidence.. I'm looking for hubs to build up a set of Mavic GP4 rims for my '83 Team Miyata

I'll PM you next time i'm bidding on hubs... wouldn't want to run up the price unnecessarily on ya
