I would give my right arm for a Daves Kingpin, congrats!

If you search the net you find plenty of info on refurbishing old SA hubs and you can still get parts for them. Some just fill it up with oil and ride and then change the oil.

You may need new spokes but that is depending on the profile of the new and old rim and the number of X (crosses) of your new build.

Search the net for pix of beautiful refurbished Kingpins for inspiration.
