That Mercier is an attractive bike; very stylish with the chrome forks and socks and the black accents. Nice looking handlebars too.

Thank you, I think so too! Hopefully locals agree since I'm going to let this one go on the local craigslist.

Here's my 86 Miyata 100M. I converted it from drop bar to upright. I changed the cranks to Shimano 660. Swapped the brakes for Mafac Racers and added Suntour levers, thumb shifters and derailleurs.

Not mine. TALL Raleigh mixte. I don't recognize the model but it looks like it might be taller than the 23" in the ad, despite the photo distortion.

My wife's 1974 Peugeot U08. It came to us in excellent shape. Upgraded with new cables, new saddle, alloy 700c rims, alloy stem and bars, metal Huret shifters to replace the Prestige plastic, and Shimano/Suntour derailleurs. Rides beautifully, and is now much lighter.

Raleigh Mixte
 
I'm helping my friend to restore this Raleigh Mixte, I worked on a couple of Mixte frames but never seen one made with Reynolds 531 tubing. I only know that Raleigh Super Course Mk.1 and Mk.2 mixtes were produced with 531. Do you guys have any info on this frame? Would greatly appreciate any advice.:) it's a very decent frame, with 531, Suntour drop outs (my '72 Super Course doesn't even have a RD hanger), according to S/N is a Worksop built unit.

Nice! I want one of those.

This page suggests that they were, and seems to show the 23" version, called Rapide there: http://raleighbikedealer.com/1980-raleigh-bikes/
I think the high-tensile framed ladies models changed their names far more often that the specifications. They are fairly common in the UK with three mixtes owned by my family: 19", 21" and 23" (mine). The 19" frame has 24" wheels. The two smaller ones are blue, branded "Wisp" and the larger is black: "Ebony". All have similar specifications with steel-rimmed wheels, Weinmann side-pulls and Huret-Sachs ECO RD (no FD). At least, by '84 they had got rid of the cotter pins!

The 531-framed mixtes are rare here. I think I have only ever seen one.

Edit: The forum software seems to have messed up the link above. Edit https: to http: and it works.
