I worked at a Peugeot/Nishiki dealership in the early 1970s, and I still have a "thing" for white Peugeots, particularly the PX-10s. Great thread!

It's a bike and it's white. But beautiful, it ain't.

Then again, it works great, rides well and I like it. Probably the only original part on the bike is the headset and the center pull brake hangers. The seat and tires have been change since the picture. This, will keep evolving.

Sure, I will play. 73 Grand Sports. Bought as a frameset and decided why not put some period correct parts on it.

Ok, I think I speak for everyone when I say... " more details needed, please "

Also... I think it's only fitting to mention in the "WHITE BIKE" month thread my favorite LBS (where I worked a LONG LONG time ago):

White's Bikes (Westminster, MD)

My daily driver. At least it was my daily driver before Covid hit... An Eddy Merckx before he got into frame building himself and simply sold his name rights to manufacturers. Found the frame in a dumpster and equipped it with parts from my parts bin.

1982ish Ron Cooper. It's been at least ten years since it looked like this, probably closer to 15. It is now the reverse of this photo: blue with white graphics, courtesy of Ed Litton. Oddly enough, the change in color did not affect how it rides one little bit.:rolleyes:
