Hi there, I'm interested in doing this. I have looked into the vintage campy hub on ebay, but none come with the skewer. Do you know if it's possible to find a 120mm skewer?

I just saw your comment, I used the 126mm Velo Orange Skewers and they had enough thread to fit the 120 hub.

Thank you! So I really want to make one of these bikes. Can you give me some more details? What are the little metal things that hold the gear cables on the bike? Also, what chain tensioners do you use? Any other info, but I basically want to make the same exact bike.

Cool! Was it hard to get the cassette to fit?

Nope, since the hub was already 120mm (track width) instead of the standard 130, there wasn't any need to stretch the dropouts, it just slides in as if it were a track wheel. It's a 5 speed because of the spacing though (rather than a 9 or 10 speed)

OK hold on, there's no freewheel?

There is a thread on freewheel. Much like a singlespeed cog, except this has 5 cogs on one freewheel.
