I think this fits here - 1973 Zeus Competition with 32mm tires, 48/32 crankset and a 14-30 7 speed freewheel. Got some help from gugie over the winter spreading the rear triangle from 120 to 128.

This one came about frame-up over the past year, with some lucky ebay and forum scores in the form of Mafac Competition brakeset, Dura Ace/Campy wheelset, VO stem, Simplex retrofrictions, and RH Parallel handlebars. Pretty sure the tires and handlebar tape are the only bits I paid retail for.

This thing is a blast to ride. Ya get so used to your 650Bx42mm tires that you forget how fast "skinny" tires feel.
