    Peugeot Folder (1970s ??)

    My daughter and I just discovered a Peugeot folding bicycle in my parent's basement. It is generally in very good "bright" shape. The tires and tubes need replacing, as does the rear light, but otherwise seems excellent. This bike hasn't been used in many years, and has little wear and tear, and no rust.

    In any event, I am looking to find out more about the bike, and to get the tires and light to bring it into riding condition.

    The tire size seems to be ETRTO 37-490 550A - 22x1-3/8A. These are a bit unusual, but I think I can get blackwalls at a local store. However, I would prefer the whitewalls as closer to the original, and I think that Schwalbe has these as HS110 Black whitewall in 37-489.

    The rear light is a Soubitez, and I think I have found a similar design that can be used.

    Anyway, she is looking forward to riding this around Harvard Square, especially in front of the School of Design. It's a pretty funky looking bike.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany. Just ordered a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO 105 to replace my "destroyed" CAAD 10 2.
