Schwinn Racer and Peugeot PH18

Two more, into the breach:

1971 Schwinn Racer -- This one looks to be in fine shape, though will likely need a different rear fender and SA shifter/cable.







1982 Peugeot PH18 -- This one needs a new rear wheel (or at least rim) that I can re-lace the SA hub into.

I like the Peugeot but I'm a Francophile.

Does the Schwinn's down tube look a bit crumpled?

I see what you mean (from the vertical shot?), but I think it was just the dusty pic. Here's another pic:



Thoughts?

It's just the weld not being made 100% perfect. Hardly uncommon on the electro-forged frames.
