    Well Hello

    Today I for the second time in as many months, dragged my very old (for a bike) Peugeot out of storage and went for a ride. Today, round trip, was only about 7 miles, but, it's a start! I used to ride it a lot, then got busy and lazy.
    So, today, I took a picture of my bike and looking at it made me remember how much I've loved it. It lasted longer than my marriage. Is older than 2 of my children. I've kept it with me, and I've lived in 10 places in the last 20 years. I've resisted the begging and pleading of my kids to "let me borrow it". Because I really like it. It has the same "kind of matching" combination lock on it forever. And I know the combination. I love a lot of things about it. I noticed it was dirty and that I have to clean it! Still, it is a cool old bike. It's really light and the very low gears are great for getting up the hills I can't avoid. Anyway, I just wondered if anyone else was riding their Peugeot from 1976. And that is how I ended up in this forum.

    Welcome!

    It sounds like you'll be spending a lot of time in the Classic & Vintage forum. Do you have a photo of your Peugeot?

    Howdy, I guess you really like your 1976 Peugeot
    Where do you like to go for rides, country, hills, downtown?

    Welcome to BF. I don't have a Peugeot but I do have an early 70's Motobecane Grand Record which I was still riding this year. But I did get a Felt Z85 in March so haven't ridden the Moto much anymore.;
