Yes, it is a slippery slope. I see my next transgression coming already. Hanging on the wall in the garage is a champagne-colored Benotto frameset, very similar the the one ridden by Frnacesco Moser in "A Sunday in Hell". I even have a Sanson jersey to match, so I suppose I am goig to have to build this one up all Campy, like those ridden by Moser & Co. And if Peter builds his Gios like DeVlaeminck's maybe we can reinact the 1976 P-R on the slightly less cobbled DC bike paths at some future Cirque.

Come to think out it, I already have a team replica Flandria, like those ridden by Maertens and Pollentier, with original Dura Ace. But I don't think Freddy featured that prominantly in the film, and I don't remember if Flandria, who began using Shimano in 1973, reportedly much to the annoyance of Tullio Campagnolo, was still using D-A in 1976. But in any case owning a Flandria is only a minor sin for a Francophile, one a couple of Hail Marys should atone for. Benotto or Masi, on the other hand, may well damn one completely.
