I was sold a "freshly reconed" E-120 on eBay a few years ago, it was an aftermarket kit, which I realized immediately, because it was not the JBL grey but a smoother darker paper cone. It was a spare speaker for me, and when I needed it, it froze up during the first set at stage volumes. The aftermarket kit could not handle the power the way the real deal can. I don't know if it was the cone or the coil, but it didn't last.
Good point, Playingdead!
I would contact the seller and discuss what recone kit he is using and if he waranties his work. This seller's world is speakers. Also, I've heard of some aftermarket kits that are available now that are in spec with the JBL factory kits and as long as he is skillful will work fine.
As far as cabinets go, there are many available. Just google it. You need to decide if you want pine, birch plywood, finished with tolex or stained wood etc..
Here is a link to a very reasonably priced speaker cab builder. http://www.thecabguy.com/index.php
He (as far as my research shows) has the best price for cabs finished with tolex. You can save a little more with an unfinished cab (pine or birch plywood), but only about $10 or $20. Then there are a couple of cab companies such as Hard Truckers, that are made of heavy duty 3/4" 7 layer plywoods for about $500.
