Never realised they was a 41t inner chainwheel. The classic combo was 42-52 on a 14-24 freewheel (for the pro's I think some had the 13t). The 6speed 'block' as we called it was introduced in 1967, Regina was de rigeur. So assume that's what you have on this build.
You will certainly have the Italians drooling over that beauty. Then of course there's the clothing to consider. Would be interested to see what you'd be wearing.
13-23 Regina ORO BX 6spd freewheel with matching Regina ORO BX chain will be going on.
You was also right to make it an all Italian build. Simplex shifters wouldn't have looked right.

The only query I had in my head was the black bartape. However, I now remember that some of the Peugeot bikes from that era had black tape. Overwhelmingly, people tended to use white tape.
Now you need a classic woollen jersey, a hairnet lid (I've got a few gratis if you want one), some Detto Pietro shoes, and gloves (can't remember the Italian name).
