Those all would have something to fit. I do ride a '72 Le Champion with 32 width rubber.

But last year I picked up late 70's or early 80's Viner Record frame for $50. Ratty. Columbus SL main tubes with Falck stays. Perfect project to play with, for grins was able to slip on a wheelset with Vittoria CX Pro file pattern tread in 32 width. Surprised me and had possibilities. Being a fairly tight geometry plus a 55 cm frame, had to remove the dropout adjuster screws. For that one, ended up building a retro-roadie w/ Campy Ergo's, widening the rear for an 8 speed.

Point being there's stuff out there for cheap and if willing to think outside the routine, could have something fun and different.
