Well there I was bored with the sun shining and some petrol in my tank. So I went searching for a frame for what will eventually be new fixie. Much to my delight hopping between various dumps I found this:
Though not too knowledgeable about what it was i did clearly notice PEUGEOT emblazoned across the frame so went for it. £2 later I had my bike. Fast forward about an hour or so...
viola one stripped down bike (which I now know to be a 1970's Peugeot U09) but alas... I have been unable to remove a few things (as far as i know its all the original parts btw), and was hoping people might be able to help me.
The things I am having trouble with are...
The cranks, i'm not sure if they are just rusted onto the BB or if there is a knack to getting them off.
The Bars, I cant slide them off (i cant get round the tight bent in the bars)
The Stem, having undone all the bits I still cant separate the stem from the forks
Also if people have any opinions on whether it is worth converting a U09 or not then I would love to hear them.
