Sold the Motobecane and some other bits to build up my Peugeot PX10.

Took a bit of time on this one:

Frame/ forks: Reynolds 531 (french decals)

Cranks: Campag Mirage 175mm 53/42

Wheels: Campag Mirage hubs with Mavic MA2 rims

R/D: Campag Record 1991 -ish

F/D: Suntour BL (to be replaced at some point)

Shifters: Campag Xenon Ergo 9spd

Cinelli stem/ bars

and my favourite parts:

Brakes: Campag C.Record Delta.

Pearlescent finsh laquer with a further polyeurathane vanish to give it that aged look.

First ride? Horrible - frame had been in my mate's lock up up down in Exeter for some 15 years. lots of surface rust, shagged Simplex parts and a 'dead' steel frame.

Couple of harsh rides stomping uphill, frame suddenly came alive and has been improving ever since.

While I was down in Exeter, down by the quay, there was an earlier 70's PX-10 with a similar 9spd upgrade to modern stuff.

Ah I see. Give us a wave if you end up down on the quay again, I can see it from my office window :)
