I know the feeling. A bit like 'which framebuilder would you use for your dream custom steel frame?'

I keep coming back to a fancy lugged Mercian...

...I know that there are much better frames out there, but dreams have no relation to fact, practicality or data.

'Merckx Molteni replica with Chorus 10'

Nnnoooo! Only with Campag Record or NR surely! Chorus is much to modern.

Or am I just being an old stick-in-the-mud?

Yes you are :-)

It's a 2003 replica, so the bits are period correct, and actually work............

Sorry Andy, I'm with Paul here - the Molteni Replica deserves older kit, would look ace with C Record complete with Deltas.

Then again, I may just be jealous, of the Molteni replica and the others you list.
