    87? Trek 1500 with the Sante'/600 mix. I just sold it and picked up an 86 Peugeot Triathlon

    I guess "3 speed" bikes are a type of road bike? the Black one is a 1968 Sears (steyer?) 3 speed, the Red one is a 1970's Columbia 5-speed. [​IMG]

    I was just checking out my wife's uncle's Peugeot, just like the one you posted. It is nowhere near as pretty as that, and I'm scared of the European sizes, so it's still in his garage, but he sure enjoyed rolling down memory lane!

    In the works. 85 Schwinn Sierra with 700c 8-speed Nexus. 20190915_095607.jpg
    But I think I'm going to put this setup, along with the Sakae cranks, on a 63 Schwinn Corvette frame. As it will have a little more rear tire clearance, a little lower bottom bracket, and room for a layback seatpost for a little more leg extension while still being able to touch the ground. 20190723_192711.jpg

    Someday I'll take a stroll around my brother's garage and snap some pics. He's a garage door repair guy, so he gets a peek at everyone's stash. All he does is vintage road bikes; Dawes, Shogun, Miyata, Miele, nothing but vintage classics. Refuses to pay over a hundred, still gets the gold.
    So stubborn about them too, I've finally convinced him to try one with a flat bar as an attempt at getting him to look at mountain bikes too. He set one up, almost. It's been done for months, except for brake levers, he "can't find any". Think it's an excuse not to get off drop bars.
