I had a white 1973 Peugeot UO-8 that looked better and rode better than a bike in that price range had any right to. I eventually cracked the chainstay between the chainring and tire clearance dimples.

I do have two littermate off-white Capo Siegers, one original, the other repainted, and I did have a pearl-colored Peugeot PKN-10 before I gave it to my elder son because it fits him better than it fits me.

Almost all-orig. 1960 Capo Sieger

Repainted Cap Sieger frame, serial number very close to that of my other Sieger, so who was I to say no to it?

My old PKN-10, now my son's kiddie-puller, although the boys are getting big for the trailer now.
