Hi you lot

Much like most people on these forums (probably) I've been into pratting around with bikes since as long as I can remember, which is about as far back as 1987 when I had a Raleigh Stormer at age 5. Years of 'mountain' bikes followed, but over the last year or so my urban dwellings have swayed my interest toward road bikes. So last month I bought this:

I think it was made around 1983; it's a standard Peugeot p10 with a 501 Carbolite frame, which, I've read, is nothing that special. I love it though. It needed some long-overdue maintenance so I resprayed and rebuilt it over the last two weeks, so now it's looking like this:

That's enough for now. I look forward to getting some questions answered and learning some proper bike maintenance stuff from you all.

Happy Cycling!

Welcome to Bike Forums, Henry. Those are nice bikes!

You can find out more about your Peugeot if you post a photo of it in the Classic & Vintage forum.
