Good new hubs for freewheels?

Hello all,
I am fixing up a 1982 Fuji: http://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...niversary.html
And it needs wheels. I'm thinking about building my own. I haven't decided whether I want 27" or 700c yet, but I do know that I want to keep the 126mm dropout spacing and original components. I plan to use a Suntour 6 speed freewheel.
What good rear hubs are available today that accept freewheels? I seem to be finding a lot of cheap Chinese stuff.
I'm not set on building my own wheels, and I'm considering both new pre-builts and used wheels. I want wheels that are durable, inexpensive, and light, in that order.
Thanks!
