A newbie here...I'm the new owner of what I believe to be a Peugeot. No idea what model. This is where I thought I might solicit some input. Any at all will be appreciated. I will list everything I do know and attempt to throw in a pic or two. Thank you all in advance.

Shimano 600
shifters
cranks
derailers

Shimano E L
hubs

Rims
Weinmann
Made in Belgium

Brakes
Weinmann
vented levers
made in western Germany

Handle Bars
Alps

Stem
Alps

The pedals and the saddle are definitley not original. On every part of the bike that can be separated, there are the numbers "9991" engraved. There are no visible markings on the frame that might tell me a model number or identify the frame style. Is this enough to go on, or does anyone know of a way I can "reveal" any markings? Thanks again.

rt968, you need to click on the Go Advanced button, click on the Manage Attachments button, and post your pictures. The system will only accept images less than or equal to a 100k image. You can reduce the size of your image by reducing either the actual size or the resolution, using image processing software (I dunno about paint, but paintshop pro will do'er).

You should also start a separate thread with the contents of this thread repeated. There are a bunch of Pugeot people who will be happy to answer, although they may not think to look in this thread for questions.

Austro Daimler Ultima

Hi to all - just signed up for bikeforums this morning. This is my first post. I've had my Ultima for about 25 years. It is a fantastic road bike. I bought the Reynolds 531 DB Austro Daimler Ultima frame w/ Campy SR headset and crank from the local bike shop when I was in college and built it up from there. He had stripped all the other components off to put on his Exxon Graftec frame (remember those?) and had the AD stored in the back of his shop. Been riding it ever since, with some component changes over the years and I've built different wheel sets for it. If you're looking for a very good vintage frame, I would certainly recommend the AD Ultima or Vent Noir. My college buddy had the black Vent Noir w/ Shimano DuraAce components. Very nice, plus it had brazeons where you could attach luggage racks for touring.

I still get compliments on my bike when I ride it. If only I was still in as good shape as the bike! I don't have a digital picture of the bike to attach - will try to get one.

Go Team BH!

Chuckk,
Great-looking Raleigh. I know you will enjoy it. I have an old mid-70's Raleigh Grand Prix that I have fixed up for my wife. Small frame size but long wheelbase - rides real smooth. Got to get new wheels, though. The original steel rims are so bent up it is horrible when you apply the breaks.

nice - is that the decaling style from that period? just wondering
tires look nicel aged, what are you running ? what rims?
funny, I've been doing the 'tape-on-the-cablehousing' thing myself - really works like a charm.

Here's the girlfriend's Schwinn Breeze, circa 1974, I believe. She bought it herself (with no encouragement from me) for $45 from the local bicycle co-op. It rides nice, and required minimal maintenance.

And here's my Raleigh Grand Prix, with what I like to think of as an eclectic mix of parts. The tubing is Reynolds 531 (presumably just the main triangle). The back wheel is C-Record/Wolber Profil 20; the front is a new Shimano generator hub laced to a Mavic Open Sport. The mismatched tyres are a Vittoria Rubino on the rear and a Specialized of some sort. The cranks and rear derailleur are C-Record. The front derailleur is a Shimano 600. Shifters are Shimano 600 (indexable rear, but set in friction mode). Brake levers are old Dura-Ace. Headset is generic, presumably a Raleigh. Bottom bracket likewise, although it is a sealed cartridge. (I have a Phil Wood to install whenever this one craps out.) Seatpost is a nicer but beat up older Campy. Stem and bars are nice Cinelli. Pedals are Time Atac. The saddle is the old Brooks B-17 off my flooded 1959 Raleigh Lenton, which can be seen in the background in the Breeze pic. The light is a Lumotec.

The front brake caliper is a Suntour GPX I removed from an old Quintana Roo triathlon bike that flooded in Hurricane Katrina. (I found the bike around the corner from my house in someone's trash.) The back caliper is a newer dual-pivot Campy Veloce. Rack is a Nitto. Rear fender is an SKS.

The bike is fast and comfy. It's a commuter, perhaps obviously. I bought it in the first few weeks after Hurricane Katrina, when I was stuck in Baton Rouge without a bicycle (I don't drive a car) and when the survival of my fleet of vintage bikes was in doubt. As it turned out, only my Lenton was flooded.

I use a small ziptie. match the color of the cable housing, and turn the sharp remainder down. It works like a charm as well.

Hi,

The decals are from the 1980s. The tires are Vittoria Corsa CX that are used from the early 1980s. The rims are circa 1978 or so Fiamme Ergals with 36 holes. The wheels were my race wheels from when I built them until around 1983. The tires were the last set that I glued on the rims and raced on until that time.

The frame is a 1975 model. I bought the bike complete with Nuovo Record components in 1976. The resotration is not historically accurate but the basic technology is the same as when it was new (5-speed freewheel, side-pull brakes, non-aero brake levers, toe clips and straps, friction shifting, etc).

Spezzotto frame I found in Austria on eBay, 80's Italian made steel frame that had never been built.
I find the Columbus bird logo mixed with builders name on the fork very interesting.
Built up with a vintage GIPIEMME NOS groupo from another guy seller in Liechtenstein, Campy wheelset so she is all Italian.
BB has SA cut into the shell, Antonio Spezzotto is the builders name.
Anyone knows the history on this builder, let me know.

I'm really enjoying all the bike photos, but have a question...
Some replies on this thread refer to their bike's picture, but it is not showing up on my computer, while other photos show up fine. What gives? I'm missing too much good stuff!
Here are some pics of my bikes.

Austro Daimler Ultima ("Puchultima" suggests its a 1976 frame, ser # 5694722 - thanks!). Campy SR crank, Suntour Cyclone f&r dr's, Campy Athena brakes, Concor Supercorsa Confort saddle, various other parts. I built the wheels w/ Campy Tippo high flange hubs, bladed spokes on front and straight on rear w/ Araya rims. (I've always built my own wheels for this bike - it is a lot of fun.) Proud owner and rider for 23 years - pruchased the blank frame in as-new condition from the local bike shop while in college.

Raleigh Grand Prix (197x?) in original condition, except the WalMart tires and leather saddle. This is my neighborhood cruiser for riding with the kids as well as the bike my wife rides on occasion. A good but heavy ride.

Thanks to all for the excellent photos!

Here is a bike that is neither Classic nor Vintage in the dictionary sense, but kind of old and maybe interesting to a few of you.

I built the frame myself with the help and equipment of Gary Hale (https://www.halebikes.com/) back in 1978 or so. This picture from his web site is me brazing this frame.

I tried to incorporate as much as I knew (which was not all that much) about French touring bikes and British rough stuff bikes. Since 650B equipment was not available then in the US, I originally built it with 26x 1 3/8 wheels. In this form, it did many miles as a camping bike on the forest roads of Oregon.

Then I got into cyclocross, and the original wheels did not serve my needs, so I got out the torch, moved the cantilever bosses and changed over to 700C and knobby sew-ups. After a two or three cyclocross seasons, my racing period ended and I went back to school. The bike went back to duty as a commuter and occasional touring bike. It has been getting more use lately as a general-purpose road bike, a little touring, and for centuries that require the low gears.

The tubing is Reynolds 531 with a heavier-gauge downtube. It has a TA triple crank, Huret duopar rear derailleur, mafac cantilevers survive on the back, and mafac levers. Shifters are Suntour barcons. The saddle is an Ideale special edition with Daniel Rebour's signature embossed in the leather, though most of the signature has rubbed into the seat of many pairs of cycling shorts.

This bike has put up with a huge amount of abuse and still is a great ride. It is a testament to steel's toughness. Maybe someday I will even put a decent paint job on it.
