Keep Shimano 105 rims off earlier 105 Schwinn Tempo, for a new bike where they cut $?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Keep Shimano 105 rims off earlier 105 Schwinn Tempo, for a new bike where they cut $?

I have a Schwinn Tempo, with full Shim 105 in great condition. I want to update to a new carbon bike, on the 105/Ultegra side, but where they cheat you on rims, should I keep my old ones per quality for the new bike? I can part my old bike out if I need to. It has the 105 crank too, but with Biopace. I could just change out the chain rings to go round rings and be as good or better than FSA or Oval, right? Help me think this out before I loose this late eighties Tempo. The frame is a little too big for me, but I'd like to sell it and keep whatever components that are better than the compromise stuff they are throwing on bikes today.......any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The rear hub is probably takes a freewheel or has a uniglide freehub, so a new cassette won't fit. You will have to determine what the hub is. The crank is up to you but you will need a frame with a threaded 68mm BB shell. And then you'll have a bike to sell that's missing the crank.
