The biggest issue with < 20 inch wheels is ride quality and performance unless you do things like add high performance tyres and a suspension / damping system.

Alex Moulten figured out the solution to that over 50 years ago.

My '66 Moulten has gotten a lot of upgrades with new wheels and modern running gear and is a rather brilliant bike.

I'd think the modern 20 Something would be a good pick as it is affordable (the wheels on my Moulten cost more) and should ride and perform quite nicely, the original Raleigh 20 is nicer in some respects but requires a fair bit of upgrading to up the performance.
