BTW, historically important bikes don't go onto a home walls, they get pinned up in their own church. Ask any Italian.

    P.s. Adrian Timmis bought back his TDF ANC  Peugeot bike and restored it. A pretty photogenic bike as you'd probably remember the Time Trial pics of him going through the sunflower fields on it with Campag rear disc wheel.

    Looks nice, but I have to say that I prefer the following images of Roche's bike   :D

     . . .

    Pretty nice. Steel is always amazingly resilient and durable. However, I would never ride 30 year old tires. Afaik, after about 5 years, a tire is irretrievably aged and no longer quite safe, even under the best storage conditions. I know I just threw out a couple of 15 year+ old tires that were never ridden, and always stored in the dark - but the sidewalls on one were all crusty and gummy, and the tread rubber on the other gone quite hard. Not to be trusted, I think.

    But a nice vid! Fun.

    Ive done 10-15 on a number of occasions, but the most I ever did was 20lbs. Ive seen people cut more and can only imagine how much it sucked. I know I spent a few hours at the gym going in and out of the sauna the day of weigh ins
