As one whose main rider is a 1965ish Cinelli with a Campy 10sp triple drivetrain, brifters, dual-pivot brakes and SPD pedals, I'm the last person to accuse you of blasphemy. The bike is being ridden and loved. Period correct? No. Giving new life to an old war horse? Yup. You have more than honored to spirit of the frame and gotten it back on the road. I think that trumps period correctness.

Of course, my opinion is worth exactly what you are paying for it.
