1989-ish Peugeot Jubilee Mixte

So, while I was watching that Raleigh mixte rusting on the bike rack at my place of business, I was also watching a couple mixtes on Craigslist. I never seriously considered this one, because if you know what it is, it's not the right size for an adult.

But then I thought, who really cares? He said make an offer, and I gave him $30 for it. For that price I'd do something with it, even if just hang it on my wall and admire it. I don't think it's even been ridden one time. Other than rotten tires, it's immaculate.

Sorry the images are a bit "soft"... my camera is not that great.

Looks great! If you're going to ride it, spend $50 or so on a pair of Pasela gumwall 27" x 1 1/4 tires. A $7 roll of bright blue bar tape to accent the lettering.

If the cables or shifters aren't working smoothly, grease the cables or shoot some triflow into the housing.

Enjoy your new bike!

Very elegant looking. Have you checked the seat post & stem to ensure they're not stuck?

I didn't tinker with it last night b/c I had given blood at a blood drive and was too tired. But yes, it is 24". Everything seems to move smoothly including the seat post and stem, all the cables are super clean, shifters are smooth, no evidence of corrosion on it anywhere. All it needs, as far as I can tell, is replacement tires/tubes, upgraded the seat and add some (definitely blue) handlebar tape.

Here it is in front of "Captain America" for reference, medium Giant frame w/ 700c.

If your next girlfriend/boyfriend is 4' 10", you've got a pretty good bike for her/him.

The ladies on my dad's side of the family have been known to shrink as we get older. I might not stay 5'4" for much longer.

Indexed shifting actually wouldn't be too complicated. That looks like a Tourney derailleur on a 5 speed freewheel. If you want to stay with that, you just need to replace your shifters. You're looking for model SL-S431 (make sure you get the 5 speed version). We have those on my wife's bike. They're not pretty, but they work.

Well done with your bargaining skills! She looks like the little sister next to the Giant frame (pun not intended).

I'm on the hunt for something similar in the DC area, but have had nothing like your luck yet. With time perhaps, as mixtes here seem to be hot commodity.
