|Frankly, Rover is tired of frenchie bikes, even Peugeots|
Score! another Peugeot mixte. This one has cool original fenders and lights, including factory internal wire routing, wow! Regina needs a Mission Beach boardwalk cruiser bike, so this small mixte should be perfect.
|The final product, with sweet Paul Components Flatbed basket|
Pretty much replaced everything that matters, largely from the parts bins. Campy Mirage square-taper crank, Shimano Nexus long-reach brakes & matching white levers, Origin8 chainring (42), Soma bars, Bontrager cruiser pedals (best I've found), WTB la-z-boy seat, original seatpost (of course, it's 24mm, so not much choice there), Weinmann/Formula wheels, Bontrager 30mm tires for cruisin', Peugeot original no-name headset, bottom bracket, and stem, and of course that awesome Paul basket. Had to get extra-long stainless steel bolts for the fork attachment, which I frankly find a little wimpy -- which explains the 25-lb. max weight limit.
|Still need to fix the rear light, but the front one works great|
|Regina and her bike, pretty sexy pair|
