Subject: [CR]KOF? Peugeot

Hello all,

I realise that the bike I am about to talk about is off topic, but I hope you will consider it to be KOF. In one of my better ebay (250131915384) purchases, I have acquired a Peugeot 753 Chorus road bike, in very good original condition, apart from the transmission which has been replaced with Dura Ace. I remember lusting after one of these machines in the LBS around the late '80s, if my memory serves me correctly. Can anyone confirm this dating? Also, does anyone know who built them and where? I wondered at the time about Peugeot doing 753 work in house, getting certification from Reynolds or whether the framebuilding was subcontracted out to an other builder? I plan to replace the transmission with a rather nice Mavic SSC unit I have lying around unused at the moment - not original spec, I know, but I think it will look the part nonetheless.

Best Regards,
