This is a 1982 Peugeot P-18. I set it up as a commuter/grocery getter. It has NOS Phillips Chrome Fenders. New Honjo Fender Stays. NOS Front French Rack. New Wald Rear Rack. New Gyes GS-07 Leather Saddle w/Springs. NOS Shimano EM Ratcheted Thumb Shifters. New Kalloy Riser Stem. New Velo Orange Brass Bell. New lined cable housing w/Aztec Stainless Steel Cables. New rim tape, tubes and tires. A new Rav X Flasher, new Kleen Kanteen Stainless Steel Bottle and NOS Reg Bottle Cage.
It has Weinmann 610 Centerpull Brakes w/new brake pads. Atom 77 6 speed, 14-28 freewheel. Atom small flange hubs w/quick release front. Rigida Super Chromix 27x1 1/4 rims, Suntour Seven Front and Rear Derailleurs and a Sedisport Chain. A Solida 52x42 Crankset w/chainguard.
I really wanted to keep that classic look when I set this bike up. This bike has been completely gone over. Every nut, bolt, washer has been cleaned and polished. The hubs, bottom bracket and headset have been repacked and the wheels trued. The frame had a few scratches which I touched up. It has been compounded and waxed. I used stainless steel buttonhead screws and acorn nuts to mount the fenders and racks.
This years model came in only one size, 50cm / 19.5" with a long seatpost. The idea is to fit many people with one size frame. My wife is 5'2" and it fits her well with the seatpost lowered. With the seatpost raised to the max it almost fits me and I am 6'1". It's a safe bet to say this bike would fit someone from 5'2" to 5'10".
Now for the cool stuff. This bike is really fun to ride! No bike shorts, no bike shoes, no gloves just get on and ride, sitting up tooling around breeze in your hair...do dat do...Even I like riding this thing. My wife likes it so much that she wants me to change up her Bianchi ! Hmmmm....This bike has a smooth, quiet, solid ride to it. It shifts really quick for friction, two clicks boom, your in the next gear. And holy cow this bike is flashy! With all that chrome this thing is like "bling central". I had to shoot it in the shade because there was just to much glare in the direct sunlight!
Because of the nature of this bike I will ship it in two boxes. The dropouts will be blocked up to prevent bending and the frame and every component will be wraped in foam. I use Paypal and Fedex ground and will ship it within three day after receiving payment. If you want to save on the shipping "and my packing" you are more than welcome to come pick it up or if you live within 100 miles or so of me I'd be happy to meet somewhere for delivery. Sorry USA only. Thanks for looking and happy bidding.
