New Member -- Just got a nice modded Peugeot 501

Hi All,

Nice to be here --

I just picked up a nice early 80's Peugeot w/ a 501 Reynolds frame -- it's been modded to a fixed-gear. Nice bike that's a great weight and very responsive.

I'm sort-of new to the biking world but have owned a few beaters in the past -- Just sayin' hey as I'm sure I"ll have lots of questions in the future regarding repairs, mods, etc.

Cheers,

Prudy

Oh, and It looks to be an '83 PGN10 judging by the serial #, etc.

Not to worry, I don't ride anything that's technically an "alt bike" either, although I've got some oddball bikes. But I still find this an interesting forum. Welcome.

Now, now, Prudy is new . If we encourage Prudy, there could be an altbike in the future, eh?

Anyway, Welcome to BikeForums !
