WWC+V Do? V. Wheelset

The bike in question is my 1984 FOCUS DX-500.



Currently it has Araya Red Label rims, laced to Sansin hubs. I have no problems with this wheelset, however.... (the saga begins).

I stumbled upon a box of spare parts that had a suntour sprint crankset and brake calipers in it...and so began my quest to upgrade the cyclone and sr to Sprint. I got FD/rd/levers from BF'ers, and I was happy. BB spindle from ebay, and all was on the bike and works beautifully..

Well..I found a set of NOS Sprint hubs in an LBS, for $45 bucks. Of course, I purchased them. I fully intended to build them up, and herein lies the question:

I ALSO have a set of Campy record hubs laced to Mavic Open4cd's that I don't have a home for.

Option A: Sprint hubs to Araya Red Labels
Option B: Sprint Hubs to Mavics
Option C: It's all junk and let some good BF'er take them off my hands so they can properly dispose of them.
Option D: Fork's Bent.

What say ye?

I can't help because the pink tape is making me unable to "focus" on anything else.

The campy hubs have a regina freewheel, to which I have no way to remove. I will probably go to the co-op to use the tools I don't have, then I will throw it all on the ground and stop away like a child when I can't get it back together.

Schwinn Cyclery on 56th, up by USF had the hubs. They had a small clutch of other stuff in the display case, I recall a DA crankset, but that was almost a year ago.

I'm in there fairly often and have seen the hubs. I live a few minutes from there and probably have the proper Regina tool. Which co-op are you referring to? 'God's Pedal Power' (not really a co-op) or the one on Waters behind the Asian restaurant?
