    Has nice Mavic sprint rims with dura ace hubs, cinelli bars and stem.
    Dura ace rear derailleur and downtube shifters.
    600 brakes, Dura ace levers.
    600 crank.
    Will be nice when finished.

    It was the fathers of a friend of the guy I bought it from. It was built by O Rourke for him to race.

    Possible same colour as my Condor as he may want to swap the Condor for a PX10 orange Peugeot.

    Not many 753 frames left! Pump it with Dynax S50 or Dinitrol - the chainstays are thin-walled and can rust out quite early.
