Also, anybody know size seatpost is proper? Since so many other parts on it have been changed out already, I'm inclined to switch to cotterless cranks and an alloy post.

Seatpost for 71-77 Super Course = 26.4mm (for Reynolds 531 straight gauge)

It would have had white Carlton hoods. These held up extremely well but I've not seen any for sale.

If you can't find the Weinmann wheels, consider Arayas as a cheaper, readily available substitute. The rims look pretty close.
