Peugeot triathlon and Orient Express '86; hub spacing and new component group.

I want to modernize most of the parts on my bikes. I know the triathlon hub rear spacing is 126 mm. and 100 mm. at the front; And I think (but, no sure) that the same dimensions are for the Orient Express, too. So, my first question if any of you can confirm the hub spacing for the Orient Express '86?
Then, because I want to use a new wheelset, cassette, deraileurs, crankset, brakes, stem, handlebars, etc on both bikes: can you suggest any that you know or think would work?
I am still considering keeping the original rims and replace just the hubs; in any case I would appreciate you suggest both the hubs and the whole wheelset.
If it makes a difference. I am using the triathlon as a road bike and the Orient Express as a touring.
