My first full restoration in 10 years....

I'm about to begin my first full restoration in 10 years. Many moons ago I left the bike industry for different pastures. I was in the industy from my junior year of high school, 1984, through 1996. While employed I restored and rebuilt well over three thousand bikes and built something like 2,500 wheels. At one point we were the only Peugeot dealer in the country and I've always had liking for Peugeots.

As all can tell from the forum Peugeots are the most highly regarded and collected bikes around. So, naturally, I decided to restore one. I choose a 1982 100th anniversary model PH 12 EDITION SPECIALE. Why? Well, I've always liked that particular model and its unique with aero tubing, aero levers (before they were 'in') internal cables and an aero water bottle. These bikes have popped up on E-bay occasionaly and I've acquired one. $185 for those who are curious. I paid less than I was willing to pay so I'm happy.

Two off them were listed recently. The first had the aero water bottle but it doesnt have as many of the original components. The second appears to be original with the exception of the tires but it doesnt have the special bottle. I purchased the second one.

What I need as listed in the 1982 brochure (which I have)
1. special aero water bottle listed as a COBRA "aero" water bottle with alloy cage
2. Michelin Bib 20 TS whitewall tires

Any help would be appreciated....heres a few pics...the bikes are different...pic #2 is mine

Can't help with the parts but you grew up in the same area I did at about the same time (I graduated from HS in '82). What shop did you used to work in?

Good luck on the rebuild. In general, I have to confess I don't share the Peugeot lust so common around here but that is a distinctive bike.

Walter, I went to HS in upstate NY. I see your into Nottingham Raleighs. Lee's bicyle and locksmith in Hallandale has a folding 20" 3-speed Raleigh. Its a little rough but it looks 100% original.

check it out if your in the area.

Peugeot

I owned one of these back in the early 80's. Purchased it in Amsterdam, Holland and made it thru Europe in 1983. Road it from Boston to Cape Cod to Skaneateles, NY only to have it stolen Labor Day weekend. I trust the rider that ended up with it had as good a time as I did with it.

I work for Michielin now. I'll have to see if the two-wheel group can locate those tires for you.

Enjoyed the memories your posting brought back.
