wow, top top work there, that tricolor stuff looks excellent. i had the aluminuim peugeot Comete back in those days, would love another but apparently they are prone to failure so generally unsafe to use.
this will be a dream bike for you, I wish you well on it

Depends whats classed as vast ...........

Its cost a bit as I decided that I wanted all new old stock, could have done if far far cheaper with used items. But as Im older now with a few (only a few mind) more pounds around me than when I was 15 I wanted to make the bike what I always wanted it to be back then.

Couldn't resist so I treated my self to this yesterday :)

If you mean the water bottles then I think they are normal campag ones, but I'll be on the hunt for a campag aero one for it, once I have every thing else sorted like wheels and cassette.

Didn't think it would be this hard to find a small 7 speed cassette, I bought one before I had really got my head back around the numbers. It turned up and looks like a moutain bike one lol. So now on the hunt for a 14 - 21 shimano one.

Talking of which I just won a pair of nos Mavic open 4cd's whoop whoop :)
