Red labels bought new by me in 85. they look nice IMO. why not be different and look for some alternative hubs eg Zeus? We didn't worry about matching wheels to groupsets but bought what was cheap, expensive, trendy, what big names used or the local wheel guru suggested.
I totally agree but I wasn't there in the day so my knowledge can only be pooled by what I read and see & sadly Campagnolo/Mavic-fitted bikes are well documented. I love old bikes, I find what I believe to be a nice frame, I research the frame to see what bits folks add to theirs or what the bike looked like when new (catalogues), from this I make a decision based on my opinion (based heavily on the above research) & then see what I can find depending on budget.
I rode and raced MTBs from 1988 to current and have always been a member of a club so knowledge gets pooled & we try lots of different bespoke kit, stems, pedals, lever blades etc and end up with very different, personal bikes. But the road thing is different, the bikes are older and the approach to the build is more as an antique collector rather than a racer. Don't get me wrong, I'll ride this bike as often as my MTBs, it's just that I (and others I'm sure) tend to build road bikes with more of an eye on the assumed period relevance rather than the personal quirks. Interesting though.
