Suggestions for restoring please.
This is my old bike I commuted to HS on. 30 years ago. Its a 1970s Mercier.
I'm going to have to restore that frame some day. I have original never been used Simplex shifter group and Mafic brakes and new cranks(cottered) with rings in my attic just waiting for that frame.
The question is, how do I wressle it away from my dear old dad who inherited it from me when I moved out.
I was thinking of going all original by robbing parts from a New Peugeot 1974 UE8 Carivan I have. (I have 3 of those) I was going to restore to original paint theme.
Now I thinking of keeping the UE8s together and upgrading the with nice alloy wheels, cranks, etc,etc.as the Mercier as it is sweeter ride than the UE8s and making a new paint theme.
Ahh, what to do....
