Since inexpensive is on your list, that would be my recommendation too.

You might check suppliers, like Niagara, to see what they offer for new freewheel hubs. You might be able to find a new lower end Shimano hub that is, or can be modified, to fit 126 mm dropouts.
My greatest fear is all of my kids standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" dad was.
