Lotus Eclair 1981 can't say no

found for $50 ,S6oo levers, Campy back, Suntour X-1 front, centerpull brakes in great condition, Supermaxy crank etc,
think it's mostly origional except for S600 gearset and the Campy front wheel.
I know I have a problem but could you folks have turned it down. Now if I can finish the Garletti and rebulld the IBoc this will be a winner.......
anyone else have this problem, maybe I should start smoking again...

Quite a bargain. I have never seen a Lotus with components that good.
The name "Eclair" would make me hungry and tempt me to make rest stops at bakeries.
