    Joining in with my Peugeot!

    Hello all,

    Finally got myself to pull out my 1984 Peugeot PSV from mothball storage in my garage.
    The bike hasn't been ridden for almost 20 years....because of work and all of other "more improtant" pursuits in life that came after college.

    Here's my baby after I just pulled her out into the sun again and polished off some rust that was just starting to dot the chrome on my front fork:




    It's a 56cm 1984 Peugeot PSV.
    The pic shows it in it's pre-restoration condition, complete with 20+ year old Specialized Turbo VS tires and latex tubes that surprisingly still held 100+ PSI air enough to let me ride it about two miles around the neighborhood when I tested the derailleurs a couple of weeks ago. Not surprisingly, the front tire blew out it's side overnight after the ride. and left a nasty crater hole on the now hard to find latex tube.



    Yikes!!
    I just finished the restoration to riding condition of the bike last week, but the weather here in the Bay area had not been cooperating for me to get new pics of the refreshed bike. I will post some on this site this weekend if I do get the chance to take more pics and include all component details on the bike.
    After 20 years it will be nice to start riding again (hopefully seriously).
    I have to confess that I first joined the "weght weenies" site before I did this one, but finding out that most bikes over there are of the composite, sub 15 pound types, I fugure I really have to find a classic bike forum instead, thus I found you guys over here. My 19 pound PSV will be considered quite an out of place old porker in the other forum and my interests in classic bikes might not be too useful to forum members over there.

    Beautiful bike. I'd love to find a nice, clean, classic bike in my size. They have a certain class newer bikes just can't match.

    Welcome to Bike Forums. That's a nice bike. Check out the Northern California regional forum for other riders in your area.
