    Seems real fishy to me.

    I think sometimes ads like this are used to mine email addresses and other information from prospective buyers of high-end stuff. I never correspond to craigslist ads...

    Those pics around Paso Robles are great.

    I did a short 20 mile shakedown for Eroica on my '62 UO8 that I plan to use on the short course in April.

    OK, here's mine. The before and after pics of a '62 Peugeot UO8 that I put a lot more time and money into than I'll ever recover.

    I signed up for the short route. Planning to ride either my '62 Peugeot UO8 or my '72 PX-10. I probably won't wear wool either.

    Sure looks like a '61 or '62 UO-8. These were decaled as "Trophee de France" prior to the ubiquitous "Record du Monde" that we all know. I have never seen one in this color, but it looks original due...

    Very nice looking bike. I like the choice of components. Still retains the vintage look. I don't think you need 27" wheels. My Grand Jubile is stock except for the wheels which are 700c sew-ups.

    Nice bike indeed!

    I would only replace the RD with a Huret and the Araya rim with a Weinmann, clean and lube all the bearings, replace cables and brake pads and ride it.

    Oh, one last thing,...

    Decals for Griffon

    Here's some one-off's I made recently. Original decal, reproduction waterslide sheet, and finished bike.

    The tough part was reproducing the Griffon bird.

    My first real bike was a brand new 1961 Varsity 10-speed. I love the checkerboard seat tube decals on the early Varsity. The bike was kinda heavy, but at the time I didn't know any better.
