Its a Peugeot, i believe around mid 80's. Stripped it, sanded it, and rattle-canned it red. Just used parts that i had laying around and built it up as my first project. Let me know what you guys like or dont like lol. ALso, i wanna sell it, what should i ask? Thanks
bravo. def one of the better budget conversions i've seen, esp. for a first build.
1) catnap is right.
2) that thing begs for fenders. you should think about polished honjos...
ed: if you're selling it, assuming most parts are new, i'd expect $250, maybe $300 best case scenereo.

The chain was from a previous bike and i havent added any links yet so in order to keep the wheel in the dropouts, i had to get the chain pretty tight. It was raining all morning and it had stopped so i wanted to snap some pictures while i had a chance.
The cranks and chainrings are Sakae's that i had from a Miyata Three-Ten
Yea i primered it and everything before painting it, although it didnt come out as well as i had planned, but oh well.
