Wow this is lovely. Got one of these frames myself recently, I also owned one of these 30years ago..!
How do I work out what wheelset, and whether it could be an 10s or even 11s?
I'm hoping to build up an alternative commuter with the widest gears and largest slick tyres I can.. thanks.

Thanks! And cool that you got one too.

Rear dropout spacing is 130mm I think, so just choose a wheelset with a 130mm rear hub, and you're dandy. 10 or 11 speed is up to you, it doesn't depend on the frame in that way. Good luck!
