I'm starting with this 1973 Cheney frame and a B50 fuel tank and that's it. I need everything else.

I'd like to use standard parts consistent with the age of the frame, such conical hubs and OIF forks.

Did the MX have a 21" front wheel? I've got a 21 that MAY have come from a B50. I'll need to locate a picture of a B50MX front wheel to see if that's what I've got. Or are there any identifying markings I could look for?

Thanks Jack. The conical hubs are one of the few parts that seems readily available.
I expect I'll be able to find one, or a pair, locally at a reasonable price, which would make it uneconomical to post from the USA.
This is a long term project, if nothing turns up after a while, I'll get back to you to see if yours is still available. Thanks.

I can't see hubs on Rickman's web site.
Joe Maxwell is selling CZ wheels.
