Univega mixtes...

Mine is a Univega "Custom Ten" and has a straight handlebar with Schwinn clone grips turned fingers forward. I just found it at a thrift and they let me take it for $1 (or it went to the dump). It isn't in very bad shape but for the sun-rotted tires.

I am PHAT though so I was actually thinking of finding a new owner (read "financier" for my postwar Rollfast) but since the intrigue was so great I came here and finally found what it is to some degree.

Even better, maybe I can learn more about my cruiser and share a few pictures of the trickout.

Dural--that's a fine looking mixte, and Welcome to C & V AND BikeForums!

Rollfast, I can't currently view your photos (they are blocked at work)...but I'll look forward to seeing them when I get home.

Univega Pix 4 ya...

Don't know how old it is but it looked to be fixable and it was a DOLLAR as the thrift didn't want it. I knew the name UNIVEGA and I knew the place on the sticker hadn't been in business for a few years or had moved/merged and certainly hadn't sold bikes in a long time to my memory. The bridges on the top have small chips yet the overall paint job isn't bad!

Oh yeah...it's a custom ten! Needs a bath also!

UPDATE It could surely use a good cleanup and lube, but it shifts nicely and precisely too! I'm almost certain the rims are straight, now it needs tubes and tires and somebody not as large as I am would love it. I think it might be a Raleigh-built model, built in Taiwan, nothing earth-shattering but it looks nice and it's very lightweight compared to your average lugged cruiser with FFPS (Flintstone Foot Pedal Synergy) Drive, and hard saddlebags.

Noah, I just want to say that I swooned when I saw this. I've seen one Peugeot men's frame in that colour, and it's truly the most attractive bike colour I've ever seen anywhere (I have a soft spot for vivid paint finishes in secondary colours, such as my lime green Sekine).

But to see that Peugeot made a mixte in that colour? If I ever saw one for sale here in southern Ontario and in crisp frame condition, I'll be willing to pay a premium for it. Seriously. I just don't see this colour turn up often. Wow. Thanks for sharing this photo!

I've had a Peugeot mixte in the most beautiful blue colour I've ever seen, very similar to that...Peugeot had some gorgeous colours.

I found this thread today, and have really enjoyed looking at all the beautiful bikes. I have to share my 1986 pink Bridgestone 300 mixte. I found it on Craigslist a few months ago, and had my LBS add the third chain ring and a taller stem, and I replaced the mattress saddle with a Brooks B72, and now it's my grocery store bike. I know the black rack is ugly, but I couldn't find a reasonably priced silver colored one. Any suggestions?

I read that some of you don't think the Rivendell Glorius is really a mixte, but I've got one and it's the most comfortable commuting bike ever.

Also, if anyone wants this double rail mattress saddle, it's yours for the cost of shipping.

Nice mixte! And pink too!

I can't comment too much on the rack since I can't see it too well...but I painted a mailbox with aluminum colored spray paint awhile back and it looked pretty good...

What type of rack are you looking for?

Is the double rail mattress saddle still available? Who is it made by?

Here are some pics of my Mixte

What do you think? Also, any idea on the year? Right now I believe it to be a 1982 P18 Carbolite A103:

I'm not the Peugeot expert, but I gotta say two things:

Love the colour.

Love the hedgehog .

Here's an old Shogun 300 that I flipped a while back. I had to completely strip the frame and repaint. It sure was comfortable to ride and I almost made it a permanent addition but didn't have the room.

That was a beautiful colour for the repaint.

Yet another Mixte to contribute. I set this up for a silent auction that I'm donating it to. It is a surprising long ride with a 108cm (ctc) wheelbase and 47cm chain stays. The head tube is very slack... it feels like easy rider!

Here's a pic of my 1950 Peugeot mixte. It was brought back to Canada in 1953 by the original owner and never ridden. The chain is sitting in a bucket of rust remover. If I can't loosen it up I'll have to swap it for another. I'm still waiting for the tires to get here. It took a bit to find them. They are the 650B size. It took some good detective work to figure out the size because the tires were so rotten I couldn't read the sidewall. Thank you Sheldon Brown. It is a 3speed(derailleur) and 100% original.

New color is called Watermelon. I'm presently adding can #3; then will sand, clean, apply decals, and clearcoat.

Another mixte

I bought this Motobecane Grand Record for $60 and fixed it up for mother. Fenders and porteur bars from Velo Orange.

Very nice! And good choices with those bars and fenders. Those were the first things to catch my eye.

And welcome to the Classic and Vintage forum!
