    Very nice mixte. Looks French to me. I saw a Singer mixte a few years back with a lot of the same detail including the same triple downtime design.

    Congrats.

    I restored this bike about 8 or 9 years ago. I use it now as my commuter/town bike. I put on vinyl decals except for the Reynolds 531 decals which are waterslide. No problem with decals sticking.

    I used Kenda K35 tires on Eroica with no issues. I found them good on gravel and dirt and they were fast on pavement. I had mine pumped up to about 90 psi for the ride. The only drawbacks are they...

    Nice build. I love the color.

    What is that clamped to the downtube above the front fender?

    I built-up a Fuji S-12-S for my wife last year with a Nexus 7 IGH, and I've got a Motobecane Le...

    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.

    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.

    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,...
