Just having a quick turnaround of this Comete frame - just wondering what to put on it:

Have:

French hubs, pedals and cranks from Miche/ Stronglight/ Navar

but no French mechs - I have Campag, Shimano and Suntour of the period - Mavic stuff is a bit out my budget - any ideas greatly appreciated.

Should it be a period refurb or should I stick stuff on like my late '80s ( and currently very sought after) Campag Deltas and C.Record mechs?

From experience I'd say deck it out with modern-ish indexed kit that looks the part.
