Retro Look Wheels, £150 max (credit crunch and all that)

Folks,

I have got myself a little project and need some nice wheels without all the fancy decals, etc. Ideally, the wheels would be silver and have 32 spokes, oh, and I've got about £150!

Anyway, the wheels must be 9 speed Campag. I think the Khamsins look the biz in terms of spec and price but they just won't look right (in my opinion) on an older frame because they are black and a bit fancy. Tried fleabay but the wheels there at the mo are either blingtastic or on their last legs.

Any thoughts? Many thanks in advance.

    Some silver Aksiums and peel off the decals (easy)?

    I have some very nice Campag Record with Mavic Open Pro Rims, beautiful condition, here's a picture of them on my old LOOK: -

    Just thought my future son-in-law has some Record/Open Pro in silver as well, mine are in just a little better condition though
  • Love the old Alan!

    Buy some retro wheels with Mavic GP40 rims or similar on ebay for peanuts, then rebuild the rear with a modern freehub (Campag or Ambrosio, but I'd keep it silver). Leave the front as is for max retro.
