on the other hand, anyone know somewhere online i could get a rear built and shipped?
for fixed wheelbuilding, go to firehouse at 50th & Baltimore. Good mechanics who dont get enough work. They may not be able to order levels (or they may...), but if you get one yourself and ask them to build it, they'll do a fantastic job. They once rescued a wheelbuilding mess that I made, with excellent results.
