Hey fellows. Check out this photo of Farrah Fawcett - our 1970's heartthrob. It looks like she is on a Peugeout PX-10.

Can anybody confirm?

Ah yes. Now I remember why I liked bicycling so much in the '70s.

Here is a fine example of the difference between women and bikes: Take this photo again today - same person, same bike. Which would look better?

Depends on how the bike was kept and you know it.

There's no chrome on her stays. She's not a (PX)10.

"I'd still rather have Farrah... The bike's an easy find."

Even easier since it looks like a UO8. I like her comfortable cycling shoes, too. Such style!

Was it around this time that American cyclists started to get serious about drafting?

I dunno. Several years ago Farrah was in Playboy. I don't know exactly how old she was, but more than 50. She was in a lot better shape than most of the '70's bikes I work on.

She sure didn't need any replacement parts - or maybe she had some upgrades already, but still a beauty.

^^ Yeah, at least Farrah's swimsuit isn't crawling up her bum.

I think fashions back then were more flattering to the average figure, and the "ideal" female figure wasn't as far removed from the mainstream average body type.

Part of the reason I wear so much vintage clothing is because I find old clothes to have a more flattering cut. Also, because they are way funkier.

I wear vintage clothing mostly because I bought it new...but you are right about the ideal human figure shifting off of the norm. Barbie and GI Joe are at least partially to blame.

Yeah I remember that. We use to be boyfriend and girlfriend in San Diego; she'd jerk my chain and I'd grease her saddle. That was as close as I ever got to a Peugeot.

Oh, good Lord. ANOTHER of these "hot female cyclists" threads? Weren't the other threads deleted, both men and women "hot cyclist" threads?

I thought you guys maybe were a little more mature than this by now. I would be ashamed.

The sun came up today. We adore the sight of women today. Stop one and you may stop the other.

i don't think anyone is claiming Farrah was a cyclist.

and acceptance is heathier than repression.

I'm fairly new here, and this is the first such thread I've seen. I imagine when photos of a good-looking male are posted, they get a similar response? Or is all of this [raises patrician nose] beneath us?

I didn't intend to offend any serious cyclists. Or anyone else for that matter. In real life I'm not a lech, but I do sometimes play one on the Internet. For laughs. ha ha. I doubt I'll ever be "mature"; perhaps after I become senile?

I don't get the whole "ashamed" thing. We should be ashamed of enjoying professional photos of a fully-clothed, famous, beautiful woman? I've tried hard to muster at least a small twinge of shame or guilt about that and nope -- it's just not happening. If it were someone's amateur photo of some hottie they saw on the road, taken without her knowledge and consent, then I'd agree it's a bad thing.

Let me guess: if we don't get it, you can't explain it, right?
