Question about Cycling
I can not answer the "who" to go to, but my experience is that any of the bike shops can point you in the right direction if they can not help you.
Vintage 60's hubs need to be going on a vintage 60's maybe 70's bike to work, otherwise the spacing will be off, so before starting this project make sure that these will work for what you are planning to put wheels on. Also you will have to be using a limited speed gear cluster for the rear hub, unless they are track hubs and then it's just one. Also you will need to know what size rim you are looking for to go with your bike frame. Modern road bikes use 700c but that was not the case in the 60's, they could have been any one of many different sizes and for your brakes to match up and the wheel to fit in the frame you need to know that too.
good luck, vintage parts can be fun to restore to working mechs but the older they are the less compatibility there will be.
