    Hi from the UK

    Was trawling for items on the Peugeot AE8, saw something and offered some info. Due to geographical issues (The North Atlantic!) I doubt I'll be posting too much!

    I dug my AE8 out of the garage today, pumped the tyres up and took it for a quick spin up the road

    Still an absolute joy to ride, although it will be forty years old next year. I think I need to fit new tyres and brake blocks (I think the ones fitted date from the 1970s... - Anyone know where I can get Mafac "Racer" blocks?)

    Also got my wife's Peugeot Ladies' bike out, not that she has ever ridden it any distance - tyres are a bit too narrow for her liking!



    Must use them more!

    Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
