New hubs laced to older rims. Is that Ok?

I am upgrading from some old Maillard hubs to Shimano 105's in order to use a 9 speed cassette. I got the hubs for cheap so I will build the wheels. The existing rims are Mavic Module E 700c, 36h, (mid 80's) and very nice eyeleted rims.
Can I use these rims to lace to the new hubs? Any reason not to?
The wheels I have are true and ride fine. I will get new spokes since the old ones would be the wrong length anyway.
