Peugeot Pro 753

Just got this bike, its in pretty good condition and has Shimano 600 groupset. The wheels are not standard, neither is the saddle I assume. If anyone has any information on what saddle and wheels I should try and put back on, being as original as possible. I will strip it down and give it a once over but don't think it needs respraying.
Any information on year, history etc would be most appreciated.

Well those are 753 renovation stickers so would assume it’s has a respray in the past 🤔

How can you tell? All of the Reynolds stickers I have are exactly the same as these - both new stickers and originals.

Am I missing a detail? Thanks

Sorry. I still don’t understand. I have seen stickers with ‘Renovated’ on them, but the sticker you’ve shown is exactly the same as an original sticker I have, which is the same as one I bought from Reynolds earlier this year.

These stickers were the Mk 1 original renovated stickers that I’m aware of but could be wrong of course..
The below is what I consider original decals

Ah. One isn’t renovated and the other not, they are simply from diffent eras. The OPs Peugeot would have come with the newer, post-1989 sticker shown, if the groupset is original.

The renovated 531 and 753 transfers I remember used to have the word Respray on them. Under the 531/753 in big letters across the label
