Hey everyone, this is my first post on here and I have some questions about my first build.

I got, what I believe, is an old Peugeot UO8 frame for free so I thought why not build it up as a FG to commute to classes this fall. What I know I'm going to need is a wheelset, bottom bracket, cranks, and a fork. Also looking to keep this fairly cheap.

So far my list as goes:
Bottom Bracket- Orange Velo Grand Cru with the French thread http://www.velo-orange.com/grcrufrthbob.html

Cranks- IRO Track Crankset (not sure if this is the best, but its relatively cheap) http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/16726-100_IROCS7-3-Parts-56-Cranks/Bolts/IRO-Track-Crankset.htm

Wheelset- I have no clue what I want or need. I think I'm going to need something with 120mm width on the rear, ammIright? I also don't want a QR back there either. Where would be a good place to buy these?

Fork- Not sure at all what I need here. There is currently the stock fork on there but it is bent and am going to need a new one.

Right now on there is the AVA stem, and I've read that I want to get rid of that.

So basically I'm asking for a lot of help here, and am hoping to get it. This will be a learning experience for me.

Thanks everyone!

Also the stem is a different diameter.. I'm going from memory but older French stems are
22.0mm diameter vs the standard 1" of 22.2mm.
That is what I recall reading. So does that mean I am going to have to find a fork from another old Peugeot or could I buy one somewhere? Ebay searches are have ceased to find anything yet, unless I'm not searching for the right thing? Or if I get a new headset too do I still have to worry about the diameter?
