well I will get in on this game. I have a 1972-73 Peugeot pl-8 that is a tad too big for me (I like to think I'm 5'6" but it is more like 5'3") 57 cm frame.... altenburger synchron brakes (eek!) but it does have the rigida serrated chrome steel rims. a few of the decals need work, no dents, and the paint is in good shape. I have all the original parts including the lights, generator, and the seat (has seen better times) Just looking for something classic (it doesn't even have to be French!) in the 48-52 cm range. pl-8.jpg. Almost forgot it is French threaded and I haven't been able to budge the cotter pins to save my life.

I am interested in the Bianchi that you have. I have a Motobecane grand touring in a 57cm.
Let me know
I'd be willing to trade the frame for a roughly equivalent value worth of parts that I could use on the new project. I thought I had indicated this on the spreadsheet, but possibly something happened. My apologies if my update did not properly apply.
In search of what to search for.
ahh yea, I see where you indicated that, sorry about that. I will see what I have lying around my storage unit tomorrow or the next day and will get back to you.
In search of what to search for.
I sent a PM to THEJAPINO, because he has a frame listed in the spreadsheet, and I'm interested in it. He hasn't responded. Anyone know how to get in touch with him/her?
Ah, OK. Good luck, and if it works out, let us know about it and see it.
If it doesn't work out, please let me know.
I uploaded some pictures. The bike is a blue Grand Record. It is 57cm c-c and c-t, it has a stronglight headset, no dents in the frame and the fork is straight. I cannot find a name on the BB but it is most likely a stronglight also. I do not have enough posts to send you a private message. If you want to send me a private message with your email we can work that way.
I am never happy with the pictures I take so if you want more let me know
Let me know
Early 70s Motobecane Grand touring 57c no dents ruff paint, Stronglight headset, BB I am not sure of the make. I am looking for a road bike of the same size, 56 -57cm,

Noglider, sorry I never got back to you. I updated the thread a while back but it is on the previous page. You're the first I contact if the trade doesn't work out! Good luck!
Schwinn Le Tour about an '89 I think.
True temper frame, nice paint with shine but areas of scratches from storage.
May let it go for a trade with 54cm.

alpha red you maybe interested in my peugeot? really need to get up to 50 posts so I can pm on here. I also have a schwinn super le tour 12.2 and all the parts to rebuild it except it does have a top tube dent and its about 70 percent stripped down paint wise.
edit* Zorro I have every intention of checking my storage unit but it was 0 today, gotta wait for it to warm up a bit.

Can we make this page a sticky so we don't have to go through two pages to find it every time?
I have a Motobecane grand touring in your size 56cm . If you are interested then shoot me an email and see if we can work something out.Scroll up and you will find a link to the pictures for this frame.
mpoltkin, I can't PM you, but do you have pics of the Super Tourer? Is it green?
My friend has one in nearly mint condition and I'd love to see more pics of one in the flesh.
I'm afraid she'd be very unwilling to give hers up for anything...especially a 24.5".
