I've got an early 1980's NOS Motobecane Le Champion Inexternal frame I'll soon build up.. Probably too much to ask, but has anyone got the chrome fork to match? Frame is 60cm. It's a light frame; maybe Vitus 979. I've read a mixed bag of comments on the inexternal method; doesn't sound too successful! I'd appreciate your comments.

Got to comment on Lance: This guy has simply provided more pure, edge-of-the-seat sporting entertainment over the past years than anyone else in cycling. He deserves kudos. Rather than an undetectable super-corporate doping program administered by Haliburton, the Lance-haters would have done better to spin the theme that he made a deal with the Devil back in the cancer days....this certainly would explain the bumbling lack-of-preparation exhibited over the years by some of his competitors; take for instance Chicken's time trial crashes & bike changes yesterday...can anyone disagree the Devil rode on his shoulder? By the way, wasn't Achilleus protected by a God when he fought Hektor? Here's another possibility....
