I personally upload to something like imageshack or photobucket then use: [IMG]xxx[/IMG]

replace xxx with the hyperlink and remove the spaces: [IMG] http://imageshack.us/a/img9/8053/peugeotfull.jpg [/IMG]

And you get this! :

Here is my 1987 Michael Celmins with Dura Ace drivetrain and Campy Record brakes. Made in the USA, right in Santa Barbara. I am still debating whether I should repaint it or not. It has some surface rust on parts where the paint was chipped off and bubbling under the pain in the seat tube/top tube junction. The problem is that I can't find anybody who can reproduce the decals. The builder stopped building frames in the early 1990s.

Finished my "maybe" rain bike. If it rides as well as it did on my test-ride today (3 miles), I may have to put it in the rotation. This frame once belonged to b dub here on BF C&V, and it got wrecked. The fork was toast, and i acquired the frame and some nice parts. The parts ended up in Canada, financing a few of the truly budget parts.

I continue to like the Microshift 9-sp shifter/brake levers. Easy to shift, definite and accurate shifting, and cheap. I put the Microshift RD and FD back in the box because I had the 105 stuff on hand. Wheels from IthaDan here on BF C&V. Super-cheapo Chinese-sourced post, stem, bars, wrap, saddle, and the Schwalbe tires were pretty reasonable, too.

Very nice color combination, I like how the Yellow and Black looks together. You've really transformed that frame into an awesome looking bike. This classic rig more than meets the eye.

I apologize for the mismatched calipers. That's being remedied with a trade...black just looks better, but I only had one!

Thanks! I'm really excited to have it finished. I picked up just the frame two years ago for 5 bucks and spent a lot of time gradually picking things out for it. I just put the saddle on, not really sure what should be done about the bar tape.

Normally I'm not a big fan of yellow, but the attention to detail on this bike is amazing, and it really looks great! Pulls it together great!

Picked this up just tonight for the equivalent of US$60. Not many old bikes in Hong Kong, so I'm quite happy.
She is in good nick and just needs some thorough cleaning, new handle bars, tape, etc.

Completed this 1983 Atala for my girlfriend a few days ago, and just got the chance to take some decent pics:


Plenty more pics taken in the late Saturday sunshine on a stop during this afternoon's inaugural roll on the build thread.

1985 Peugeot , 52cm(20.5"), 21.25lbs., "garage queen" that was barely ridden, even still has the factory model and size taped on the chain stay. Looks like zero wear on the crankset,chain and freewheel. All original except for new tires and brake lever hoods(both were original but deteriorated with age). Paint is not perfect, some marks, and chrome fork has very light pitting but it still looks very nice, you can see some pitting on the blade in the pic of the Simplex qr. Not close to my size so it will be gone soon.
















no post binder, quill style seatpost

^ wow. I've never seen that style seatpost before. I assume it requires saddle removal to get at the quill bolt.
