Looking for a cheap wheelset

Hey guys, looking for a cheap wheelset for no more than 80, either second hand or new. I already understand I wont get a custom pair for that but im on a limited budget, so would appreciate your help on this matter. Wheels have to be 26" by the way

Take a look at craigslist, London's but with a guide to other locations: craigslist: london, UK classifieds for jobs, flats, personals, for sale, services, community and events . A quick look showed complete mountain bikes for less than your max. price.

Ask at the local bike shop yet? machine built wheels are the low cost winner around here , but that is each at your offering price, not a pair.. about $50 US ... rear would be freewheel ..
