Just acquired a Peugeot frame and fork with the internally rifled Reynolds 708 tubeset - hope to make it into something rideable soon.

Apparently it was a concept tube set with 531 main tubes and 753 rear stays/fork in road tube sizes. The 3 main tubes were not butted, but had 8 flats running the full length (except seat tube where it was only partial).

An example (not mine) built up and a page from the 1994 catalogue (the closest I can find to the model/tubeset) thus far.

Any other information please tag on here!

The Sachs New Success is an interesting groupset which we don't see that often. Still availabel at Ebay and other places with some patience.
