I thought the blue chainrings were a good match for the frame. I might have a punt on them myself.

Mark.

the last 6 weeks have provided....
indecision and procrastination over headsets--i finally gave in and fitted the almost new Miche from my Peugeot, its far from brilliant, i give it 4/10 for operation and maybe 4 months before it's total trash.
frustration at missing multiple rear mechs on ebay--Grrrr- but luckly i've found all the missing parts from a 90's Chorus mech on my Garage floor, search over for now.
and one pair of puuuurrfect Record mk1 8 sp Ergos--thanks to Pete mcc, top class, i'll have to convert these to 9's at some point.

almost done now

Hi J
June's not a good month for projects around here, i get distracted by a silly 24hr race in northern France
the Merckx is not yet completed but i have had a couple of short rides, its suffering with unwanted transmission noise, i've checked the mech hanger, that's straight but that's as far as i got.
borrowed the 8 sp Cosmics off my Daccordi (it's been mothballed) till i go 9 speed, i better hurry up, my next (LAST) project is waiting

wow, that is one seriously stylish machine and uber rare too i should think.
I prefer the black/gumwall tyres than the red veloflex.
Do tell what the "last " project is :)
