Discussion in 'ROAD & TOURING BIKES' started by rife with bikes, Oct 21, 2010.
i just picked up a Peugeot road bike and I have a Schwinn World Sport. lets see yours
that peugeot is lovely, I only do peugeot's...
the orange and the green one are my daily rides...
but I do own a lot more ;-)
I like those Peugeots
my neighbor gave me this. it'll get the s.s. treatment and sold on CL eventually. I have all the parts and paint, just need to find time to work on it.
They're not classic road bikes, but here are ours.

Nice bikes guys! Bral, My bike has the same decals as your green one.
I cleaned mine up tonight. It needs tires and a seat bad! And a kickstand. I'm not used to not having a kickstand. Is it a sin to put one on one of these bikes? lol. I'm going to post a want ad for one in the wanted section. heres a pic after I cleaned it.
LETS SEE SOME MORE
why would a kickstand be sin for a daily ride....or for any other bike....as long as it's a nice one...
mine's got the stock 70's item, which someone offered me 25 euro's for.. ;-)
(i'd rather have a kickstand than those plastic fancyfair style reflectors which most of you us citizens seem to run... ;-))
maybe you should change that foam stuff on y'r bars...I don't like the look and feel of that stuff...
I picked this Winchester up recently, I was told by the original owner he bought it around 1972 and it was built by people who left the Campagnola Bike Co. and started this Co. Any info would be appreciated.
I plan on cleaning this one for my rider.
Bral your right that foam stuff is gotta go. Its real thick and funky feeling. And sin or not its getting a stand. I don't know why it doesn't have one. It doesn't look as if it ever had one on it either. ??
The reflectors do date it back to the 70s . Kinda funky.
KZ1000 , Nice find. Like the rack on the back. And yours has the chrome rear drops like the ft. forks. Never seen that before.
I've owned a few this year..... :lol:
Schwinn Le Tour Tourist
3 speed Murry
And I have a Peugeot too
wow, that's rare man, a late 70's peugeot folding bike...I like..
Really? I scored it at a yard sale for $20. What is it really worth? I have seen some cheaper ones go on C-list for $150-$200.
My only complaint about it is I can't get tires from the LBS. Got to order online and wait for them to come in the mail.
sadly, peugeot value's don't depend on their "rareness" as with old italian bikes or so...but I'd say in mint condition here in europe some 100 to 150 euro's....
most people get horny of old bianchi's/colnago's and stuff but since the japanese and their seemingly limitless budgets discovered that also the prices go so high that normal people can't afford them anymore ..
so I hope that in a few years everybody loves old peugeots, and my collection will be worth...say millions ;-)
Well I won't be selling mine any time soon. I love it. Rides great. and I like the drum brake in the rear. kinda unique.
wish I could sell this one. need $$$ for new builds.
Yeah I been trying to sell my Schwinn Caliente too, Only asking $50 and it has sat for a few months. Nobody wanting bikes at the end of the season I guess.
Heres my 70s Fuji. First photo is as I got it, second is as it currently sits.

thats a nice bike
I really like the stance of those old Fuji's, the laid back angle of the frontend...it really looks the part, sorta like straight from the 30's...
