I have a couple of questions after picking up a 1930's Macleans Featherweight frame from eBay yesterday (#320004939033)

The frame number is W 108. Does anybody know how to date Macleans frames?

It takes 26" wheels, about which I know nothing. What rims and hubs should I be looking for? How easy is it to get hold of appropriate tyres?

Many thanks,
