Todays find. Peugeot mixte

Pulled this out of the container today. 53,5 cm, mint green colour. Paint in great shape, hardly used.











Not high grade, but stylish and frame/paint very in good condition. Therefor upgrading this one could be good fun and give a stylish bike. It is too small for me so I am hoping to find somebody to adopt it. Sending a e-mail today to one lady..

Send a PM to afilado for examples of just how nice a Pug mixte can be, for a reasonable price, too.

Unbelievable. Where do you live? -- I think I need to go for a walk in your neighborhood! Compared to other places, we have lots of vintage Peugeot and Motobecane bicycles in the Boston area -- but on Craigslist, not in the trash.

Are there no links to postings in the forums? What about the famous, newer dying mixte thread?

Just the stem loosened and bars put along wit the bike, I guess for easy storage. One brakelever is out of position, maybe from landing in the dumpster. I think bars and brakelevers is going to be swapped for some slightly swept back ones. Looks like the dynamo and light is working ok.

Nice one... Like you said, I'd swap those bars for some up uprights and wax it down. Great bike...Got lucky on the generator.

Interesting ... a Carbolite frame with a proper seatpost clamp, instead of a hard-to-find internally expanding seatpost. The somewhat narrow range freewheel, downtube shifters, light, and mudguards shout "European model."
