I've got a low end Peugeot from around 1976 that I'm putting together. It's mostly complete except for the wheels. When I tried to put an old 5 speed 27" wheel on the back I had to spread the dropouts a significant distance. At first I thought the frame &/or dropouts where bent. They may be bent, but they don't appear THAT bent.
I'm now thinking that there may be something about rear wheel spacing that I don't know about.
I measure it at 113mm. Is this close to what one of you experts would expect?
By the way the serial #(?) is y806 06391.
Thanks for any help!
