I don't know if it's an option, but the Sun XCD cassette hub with the "short" cassette body might make a cool rear wheel: http://sunxcd.net/hubs/
My Vitus 979 seems to have a rear spacing of 114 mm. I believe it should be at least 126 mm. Could years in storage cause the rear dropouts to converge? Or is that normal and I just need to flex it out to drop a wheel in? Thanks.

The ride is just as smooth as my first Vitus I had back when little Bikegeek1968 was just starting out racing in Norcal. I really love the retrofriction shifters, and this set is unmarked because it is part of a Mavic group.
This bike is going with me to L'Eroica this year, and we are going for speed.
