On one of my touring bikes, I am still using one wheel built in 1992, and the other in 1989! A mechanic gave them a look-over last weekend, and pronounced them ready to go (as soon as the hub bearings are repacked). This bicycle hasn't had a complete overhaul in five years; that's when I got a new bicycle.
Quality bike components are good investments. A well-built wheel, properly maintained, may last the life of a bicycle.
