1985 Peugeot Orient Express with a 40-year-old leather Brooks B-66. Goes nicely with the chrome Peugeot U.S. Express I posted earlier. This thread is getting me hooked on "old school" mountain bikes!

You should strip it and share those lovely Scott AT-3's

[QUOTE=cycleheimer;14177158]1985 Peugeot Orient Express with a 40-year-old leather Brooks B-66.

The saddle looks as if it could have been standard, Brooks springer saddles were used on pug MTB's until the 1989 Europe Express.

I feel the same way. I only have one mountain bike, but when cool old Peugeots like yours are posted I get the urge to get another. That picture at duskt gives it an evil look to it.

It's working out great. I did notice quite a few of them on bikes shown on the MOMBAT site .... https://mombat.org/MOMBAT/index.html

Kobe,

The bull moose bars did it for me, especially after seeing the red Ritchey posted above. Yea, it does have an evil look to it ... even in broad daylight. I think I'll nickname it Damien.

I have a bullmoose bar I was going to add to my Univega, but unfortunately it is .833. I like the look of them and dry fitting it the hand positioning was nice.

I've modified this and use it as a Touring rig. I use it on metric centuries. It's pretty heavy but a really sweet ride. Reasonably fast and quite nimble and very stable (lots of inertia in those big fat mammoth wheels). It gives me quite the workout!

I would say not yet - but it will be. The US-made CrMo Marins at least through 2000 (and maybe beyond) are very fine bikes.

This is a 80's? Nakumura that I received in trade.
I think just the frame is original.
I love this bike, it's very well built and it's become my dry weather commuter.

Thanks Auchen, I have looked all over this frame, I have owned the bike since new, But it does not say were the frame was made?? I ride the bike on metric centrys, club rides and just recently "kind of " retired her with a new Specialized for the street. But I will always love the sweet way this Marin rides!

I just picked up this '85 Miyata Ridge Runner. I intend to keep this a little rough to use as a commuter, trail and city bike. This bike has been ridden and I intend to continue the tradition. Pretty excited to adjust the derailleurs, clean the chain and ride it in all weather.
