Subject: [CR]I need some advice


I have a 70's Motobecane Grand Record that has always been just great. I was out last weekend and broke some spokes. Unfortunately when the shop went to take the freewheel off they seem to have bent the Suntour Sprint Hub (not original. From the mid 80's). So now I am stuck. Where can I get another hub or wheel for a bike of this vintage? Rim is in great shape and I have a spare unused rim in any case. My understanding is that current hubs are not compatible. I had thought to sell the bike this season but now I am not sure whether that even makes sense. Parting it out would seem a shame. So here are my questions:

1) where can I get a new hub or wheel at a reasonable price? 2) Should I replace the wheel prior to listing the bike or should I just go ahead and offer it up as is?

Thanks John
