70 's (possibly 80's) Schwinn University Cafe Bike Project

Hopefully this is in the right category. I purchased an older Schwinn bike a couple years back. Rode it around college and can not for the sake of get rid of it. So I thought of an idea to turn it into a cafe racer bicycle. Considering turning it into a single speed. The thing is original; steel wheels and possibly everything you can imagine what it came with. I will try and post up pictures.

Things I want to do with he bike...
Install allium wheels. I looked around the forums and it look like there are other there installed 26" aluminum wheels for a better comfort. I want to get wider tires. Could slmeon refer me to a good website to look for wheels? How about the kind of wheels, am
I looking at road bike wheels or...? Size tires?

Looking to install new crank kit. This bike will be a commuter bike, used during the summer and nicer weather in the Midwest. Any suggestions as to where j can find a nice new crankset.

Hope someone can chime in and give me an idea about where I can start picking up parts.

Thanks for reading my post!

We really can't help you without pictures. You could have anything from a 26" cruiser with a 1 piece crank to a 27" road bike with a 3 piece crank. We can't give any recommendations without knowing what you have.
