The olive oil is a good tip!

I'm not too concerned about it coming un-glued, I'm not likely to ride it hard.

It appears I am going with Mavic, which unfortunately means that due to my completist nature I am not going to be happy till it has Mavic bars, stem and seat post too - guess it won't be done cheaply or quickly.

Luckily I have some appropriate tyres in stock, hoping I can get to an almost entirely French build, though tracking down a nice Ideale 2002/2003 may be tricky.

Beautiful bike but be very careful - they do come apart and sometimes with no warning - especially this long after manufacture.

Cracking.

Mavic bar and stem in suitable dimensions are winging their way from the Mother-land, along with an appropriate French bum-perch. No more stuff for it for now, will wait till the new year!

Got an 801 mech, just some brake levers and I could put her together!

Could.

Lovely job, I like the black stem on there.
