How 'bout some opinions about spokes?

I am building (well I am having someone build!) a new wheelset for my '75 TI Raleigh Pro. Mavic Monthlery Legere 32-hole rims. Campagnolo low-flange hubs. 12-17 t 6-speed Regina freewheel (until I find the alloy Maillard). And if I can justify the cost, something nicer than the Vittoria Rallys I usually shod my machines with.

What type (gauge, make, type etc.) spokes would be recommended for this?

The idea is what would be prototypical for a pro racing machine c. 1975. I weigh 165 lbs and the machine would be run on good quality tarmac only. No pounding up hills off the saddle. Run hard but not abused.

Thanks for any suggestions.
