    My '86 Peugeot Tourmalet park bike

    Just wanted to show off this old Peugeot Tourmalet that I found in my dad's garage. He was about to give it away and I nabbed it just in time. Told him this thing would make an awesome park bike. The damn thing was mint.

    I cleaned it up, but new bars on it, some city break levers, new saddle and pedals. Bam, this thing is clean and a blast to ride. Nothing is more fun than passing some modern bike on this beast!

    Cheers,
    bkdelux

    Ha, you got me there. Maybe because living in Texas I feel safest riding in the park!

    So true, and the best deals always bring the most joy. It's like what they say about free beer.
