Cheers guys,

I stayed away from the 2cd's as I didn't want to muck about with tubs, glue and all the hassle if I got a puncture.

As for doing another one I'll be keeping my eye out. What I really want when I can afford it and if I can find one and one in the right size is the 753 frame in this same colour.

Hope don’t you mind me adding a note to your thread.
My Peugeot Athena is now fully commissioned having had new wheels built recently, as I was not going down the tubular tyre route.
Had a very quick test ride during the week between the rain storms, however I completed over 45 miles as part of a Sunday club ride recently.
This bike is amazing, silky smooth operation and an absolute joy to ride.
The gearing is a tad higher than my other “modern” road bike, but I can live with that.
It’s has Campagnolo 14 speed index gearing, every gear change is quick and positive.
The bike was in excellent original condition when I purchased it and came with the tubular rims.
Just needed a good clean and polish which became a tad obsessional at times, just couldn’t stop polishing it. :D
Really looking forward to the next ride. 

No problem, it took me back seeing your pics. The stuff I ended up doing to mine at the time was mad. Still don't know how I managed it on a Paper boy and a Saturday Whimpy pay pack lol.

Nice work Maca it looks amazing and i would have commented a lot earlier but while you were completing your bike i was completing my move from house to flat and haven't had a decent tinternet until December so this is the first few days that i've managed to get back on the forum but it's certainly been worth the wait ;) ..
