Cool or not???

Got a bunch of bikes a week or two ago and this was one of them. It came with a matching Mixte but the Mixte is candy red. Anyway, first time I ever ran across saddle bags like these. Everything on the bike, fenders, racks, lights and perhaps even the panniers are Peugeot issue.







The bike is filthy(covered in dust) but will probably clean up well. Sadly, I do not need another French Peugeot.

I could use those for going to the HW store & the grocery store.

I like those fenders too.

Bike appears to be the same year as mine, '74.

Perhaps you could use the panniers as models for a new set made of better materials. That vinyl may well be suffering from dry rot. You could lose your pickles. Or your beer.

+1

Almost no one has real vintage panniers. Do they work okay, or is there an issue with heel strike?

Gotta couple of mixte Peugeots...

I haven't really had time to get at the Mixte yet but here is a bit of a teaser. The bike is in very nice shape and is not just a regular mixte. This one has the fenders, lights(front broken), luggage rack and rack braze-ons.

I also have a blue mixte but little time to work at it either.

Very cool panniers. You don't see 'em like that too often, especially made out of that 70's-tastic vinyl.

Is there an internal frame in the bag?


I love the Pug mixtes, There's something about the rear brake cable routing and the way the straddle wire goes around the seatpost that I really think is cool.

Goo shape...

Upon first glimpse, the saddle bags looked pretty bad but the bad was only dust, stuck onto the surface. The bags cleaned up really good and I haven't really spent much time working on them. There is a metal frame inside that helps maintain shape. A bit of piping in missing but other than that, pretty decent. All in all, a serviceable set of bags in my opinion, though not the sort I would want to put to every day use. After all, they are pretty old and not often seen these days.

As for how do they impact clearance, I really don't know. I have made little effort to investigate the bicycle so far. The only thing that seems apparent is that neither the blue man's nor the red mixte have seen much use.



The more I think about it, the more interesting the project becomes. Of course, I go through this all the time. I must repeat, I cannot keep them all, I cannot kee...

Good grief, there must be more used bikes than people in Thunder Bay.

I'm not saying I'd want them, but the saddle bags are pretty cool, in a 'riding to a party; need some way to carry my record player and 45 collection' sort of way.

The bags are different and I was giving some thought to blue handlebar tape and the panniers on my PX10. Wadda ya think?

I think the vibe is inconsistent. The bags are kind of kitschy-cool, whereas the frame/93 cranks are more elegant. But if you like it, go for it. It's not like you'd be brazing them on.

Joking...

I copied and pasted the bags onto the PX10 as a joke. Though I do like the bags, I will be playing hockey in h*!! before I used them on anything except the bike they are presently on. For some reason, they look OK on the blue Peugeot and it would be nice to see the whole deal all cleaned up.
