Wheels won't make your performance better on that bike. Changing up the groupset and getting more gears might. But improving the motor is your best bet. Just ride more and farther. Aero light...

All good points above. If you have clincher rims from the original '70s period they probably have straight inner sidewalls, not hook bead. So tire selection becomes a little problematic for bead...
