I bought a Peugeot mixte and wanted to restore it and sell it. We'll basically a very good clean and new cables etc. But i have decided against that now and have decided to make a Singlespeed conversion as i think this clean look will suit this frame.
I stripped the bike to nut and bolts and have been slowly cleaning and putting back together. I have cleaned and put new grease in the bottom bracket and headset. Installed a vintage 18 tooth singlespeed cog onto the Normandy hubs. The bike has Philippe porteur bars and stem and a nice petite luggage rack on the front brake. I think it is coming along nicely but it is far from finished. I am looking around for a Vintage tan leather seat and would like leather bar grips as well.
Here is a photo of it so far. Let me know what you think.
