S-10-S rebuild - Need input on decisions

Have to think this through fairly quickly or a window of opportunity may close.

Rebuilding an S-10-S 12-speed for personal use (fun). Have power coated the frame and installed a new geadset and a mustache handlebar. I have assembled a complete NOS Suntour Superbe group for the bike.

Probelm 1: Superbe RDs only accommodate 23 gears max. Most freewheels are 28 max nowadays. Do I go with the Superbe RD? If not, what do I replace it with?

Problem 2: Suntour rims/hubs are in great shape, spokes are toast. New wheel set (comparable) is $110. Rebuild is a little more. Go with the rebuild or buy new?
