Unfortunatly they're not mine. I got the pic of the Classic Rendezvous web site. By the way, why are you doing the house cleaning of your vintage parts?
too many things not used...Spirito

i have sold or have on auction all my parts that i have had for years. the right px10 variant never found me and i am more leaning towards italian anyways.

all the $'s will go into my merckx frame that i have on order and just want to have 1 bike with an assortmant of parts i have always wanted. hopefully it all comes together. i hope to make it look pretty and keep most of it classic.

i guess ill never rebuild a peugeot now as i have sold a nos original peugeot wool shorts, nos simplex criterium derailleur set, nos mafac "racer" brakeset, nos adga la chatillionaire saddle, nos nuovo record seat post, and soon to sell the nos mafac 2000 brakeset, nos campy nuovo record pedals, and the nos stronglight 105bis crankset. listing the cranks was hard as they are somthing else. my friend is considering my nos normandy-maillard high flange hubs if he kind find the right freewheels for them.

i guess my sensibilities are of components a little later in style as im a big junkie on c-record. i wont be using the delta brakes tho as ive had 4 sets and have managed well with them but have grown used to the power of modern brakes (i live in NYC so it comes in handy and i dont see this being a big compromise).

i will though be sending all my jpegs to dale at classic rendezvous so he can list the parts images on his site as most were still in box.

8 years in storage and they are now expensive parts. i didn't know it then but it has been the best return on any investment i have ever made by far. when i bought them they were almost giving them away. and ive checked with the buyers and they are all being put to great use on very authentic bikes which makes me happy.

c'est la vie ;-)
about the do it all mercxx..colker

how will you switch from fixed to gears?
btw...that stronglight crank is pretty. what about the pentagram holding the rings? very strange. is the finish as good as record?

from gears to fixed will be slipping off the shifters and derailleurs of course. taking of the chainrings and bolts and using chainring bolts for a single chainring. the single chairing will be on the inside and i may have to use small spacers to get the right chainline.

take of the freewheel and replace with a fixed cog. the dropouts are long and horizontal so chain tension is easier and have been toying the whole set up on my montagner road/fixed test mule bike at the moment.

the stronglight cranks are very beautifully finished and i can say VERY light as well. the finish is up there with campy of the same era but not like c-record or anything later ....this was the seventies and finish was good but not perfect. i came very close to using it but that meant staying with the 122bcd which is now pretty rare and should i bust a chainring or need a replacement it would mean some hunting.

in all i have basically sold the parts for a show bike such as this...

i hope they are used to the same effect as thats one pretty bike.

the finish

on my molteni replica. i figured it looked good and people still argue with me about whether or not i mean a 39t ring or 40t ring. did it on a drill press and cleaned it up with a hand drill. sorry about the clarity of the pic. i had to cut and crop from a much larger pic.
