    Here is a tall Fuji I picked up the other day. I don't know what model it is as all the decals were removed. Added new tires, tubes, chain, cables, bartape, and brake pads. It has some nice, colored jockey wheels in the VX RD and I added the aero levers as the final touch.

    Thanks.

    I haven't measured it yet. My guess is 65cm. It's too tall for me to stand over and I've got a 32.5 inseam.

    Looks like it could be a late 70's Royale.

    If so, here is its Mixte cousin for $75.

    I think the Mixte is an 81 Royale like mine. I'm pretty sure 1981 was the only year for the Mixte.

    81 Royales didn't have clips for the rear brake cable on the top tube and weren't available in black. http://www.classicfuji.com/1981_14_R...Mixte_Page.htm

    Yeah... After the post I realized the discussion was about the bike in Post 1327, not the CL ad just above my post. The bike in the post is a 1981 is what I meant.

    Good call. It does indeed look like a Royale. With a slightly different crank and brakeset.

    Edit: After checking the Classicfuji.com catalogs, I have it narrowed down to a 1977 S10-S or a 1979 Grand Tourer. Colors and components are a closer match to the S10-S.

    has all stock parts on it cleaned up most of the grim on it and found only a few nicks in the paint. some rust on the rims that i plan on cleaning up, but over all im very pleased with it.

    A vendor at the flea market had a bunch of bike stuff, he's been selling it off since closing his small shop a few years ago. I only had about $20 to spend so I had to pass on some cool stuff, but I grabbed a NOS pair of tiny Detto Pietro shoes, a few sets of Christophe straps, a handful of lockblocks, and a "bonus" Shimano 3 speed cable (it was buried in the box in the background.)



    Whats in the box? Another 300+ lockblocks. Looks like I'll be doing some business on eBay...



    The stuff I didn't buy included a stack of SR chain rings ($1 each, if I took the lot,) a pair of Scott AT-3 bars with stems and some interesting brake levers that appeared to be made for trekking bars, like full-size MTB levers with an additional 90 bend at the end.

    He also had a few jars of misc hardware, including two full of steel Sugino and SR crank bolt caps, and another with 3-speed hardware for Shimano and SA hubs. His prices were a bit steep on some of this stuff, but well under what it's worth. I'll be going back with a fatter wallet.

    Those jockeys are Bullseye, with sealed bearings - looks as if they have seen no use. I have a worn pair - I put maybe 18K Miles on em - they really are an improvement over the stock plastic ones - no slop and they are soooooooo smooth. I wish someone still made them.

    I hope my profanity does not offend, but all I can say after seeing your Peugeot is holy ****: you people are killing me with these finds!
    I could care less for most Peugeots, but the quality and condition of the paint on this bike is amazing.
    Looks like very little else needs more than a quick breakdown, cleaning, regrease: the bike will gleam.
    I can easily see someone paying $150-200 for a bike like this in any shop here in NYC.

    Everytime I see someone on this thread pull a classic like this our of the trash, especially in this condition, I can only conclude that many more people must be mentally ill to consider something like this worthy of trash.

    I have to admit ignorance on the Reynolds 501 code for Cr-Mo tubing: can anyone say how this compares to 531 steel?

    Freespirit? That's a Sears bike. It could have been made by CCM, I have an old CCM that has a sturmey-archer on it and it's full of other great British/American hybridization quirks.

    Anywho, here's what I picked up the other day, the front wheel is held on by one seized nut, but apparently it used to be a single-speed. Anyone know what model Raleigh it is? Thankfully the BB seems to be sound so I won't have to deal with that, whatever I decide to do with it... might be an easy one to make into a fixed gear?

    Which Peugeot are you refering too? Just curious. I didn't see one on this page.

    This one?


    BTW, it's now cleaned up and has yellow cork tape and some Exage aero levers I found in the bottom of my parts box. Greased and adjusted, although I have to sort out a tension problem in the rear shift lever. Very nice, smooth ride.

    What is a lockblock? Maybe I'll be your first customer, as soon as I figure out what it is? Some kind of mount?

    The one good thing about black cork wrap is that it's better than nothing.

    Yes, they were originally intended to mount a U-lock on the handlebars, but with the advent of small and powerful LED lights, they're in demand. Search the forum for "Twofish" and you'll find more info.

    1986 PH-501 Ventoux?

    Yeah, that's the one I was referring to: your 'burgundy beauty'!
    To echo Machin Shin (best avatar ever!), could you post your 'after' pics?
    One of the greatest things about this site are some of the basket cases
    that folks find, and miraculous turn into cherry rides, often flipping them for
    nice return.

    Any comments about the Reynolds 501 compared to 531?

    I have a '83 Motobecane Mirage, blue metallic paint that is really nice.
    Were these Peugeots still French-made by this date?

    Dunno if you can generalize, but from what I've seen with the Motos, the paint
    schemes and quality always seem real nice: this one is no exception!
