Vintage wheel question
This is basic, but:
I'm looking for a set of 700c wheels that are 126mm to use with a freewheel.
Can I use a wheel with a Campy rear hub-----I assume the threads were the same back then before cassettes?
The rest of the bike is Suntour/Shimano
Maybe. There are three major different threads for rear FreeWheels. French, Italian and English with the latter the most prevelent and the french least prevelent in the USA. the Italian and English are close enough but go to http://sheldonbrown.com/freewheels.html#threading for details.
True, but in 40 years of messing with old bikes I think I've only encountered 1 French threaded freewheel and 1 pair of French threaded Zeus hubs.

You shouldn't have a problem. I've done the exact thing many times.
