    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!

    Plenty of UK and Euro members here at Bikeforums, Welcome!
    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    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!

    To err is human. To moo is bovine.

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