And here is my Girlfriend Peugeot 3 speed with 650B tyres

Since the pictures was taken, I replaced the saddle with a brown one with springs

Under all of this rust and crap is a beauty.
I think it's a 1930's velo de course.

Mercier 200, labeled "Raymond Poulidor", from about 1965-67. Just bought the frameset and re-built it as a daily ride. Main frame is Reynolds 531.

You need to dust it for fingerprints to be sure. Sometimes Thevenet left a shoppinglist in the seat tube, which would read:

1 pain
pinard
saucisson


Exceptional bikes!

Just when I thought I've seen all the lug designs out there.....that one with the clovers looks lovely and really grabs my attention......I wonder if there could there be similar ones made with a fleur de lys instead which would be even more "French"??

I'm still trying to figure out how that derailleur works.
Thanks for sharing, martl.

Wow - those are some wide tubulars. What is the rim/tire combination? Nice bike!

I suppose the beauty in under there somewhere. I hear if you rub aluminum foil on the rust the paint will come right up.

I don't think I've actually posted my completed Peugeot PL8 gas pipe here. Nickname is Ms. Patina because it's loaded with it. Given to me by my dad. It came to him originally as a fixed gear. He then eventually had it converted to a geared machine with a real mix of parts. I finished it last winter and converted to cotterless bottom bracket with a Campy NR crankset courtesy of Drillium Dude. Simplex rear derailleur and newer Simplex front derailleur from Chris W and Simplex levers (combined from the old one and a clean set pulled out of the lbs' parts box). Super Champion tubular wheelset with Normandy hubs and french thread 6 spd freewheel. Pivo stem and bars and Altenberger brakes paired with Dia-Compe levers. The seatpost is still the steel one as it's got some funky "reducer" inside the seat tube so the post has to be narrower and fits into a sleeve. I had the Lyotard pedals with Christophe straps on it but have since gone to Look Deltas. Couldn't get comfortable with the straps and my wider feet.

Hey David, Thanks for the tip! But on this bike i can see that most of the paint has disappeared. I'm just going to rub the rust off and protect the bare frame from further rust.
This is going to be a " rough around the edges " bike.

Here is a shot to show the geometry with 700b wheels installed.

Wheels are different - I just took what I found in the garage... Rear wheel is an Exceltoo NewStar hub with 27" Weinmann rim from the 60's, tire was an old Wolber. (It exploded two weeks ago , and I put a Continental on afterwards. But looks the same.)

Clover leafs were Automotos trademark. I've seen Fleur de Lis on Gloria Garibaldinas, so maybe mr. Gloria had a french mistress? :hmm:

Thanks for sharing, martl.

Petty simple, pedal backward, adjust chain with that fork thingie on the chainstay. The lever underneath the BB ist just a chain tensioner.
Works surprisingly well.

I bought a pair of Peugeots to flip, but ended up flipping the mixte and keeping this 1984 PGN 10. New tires and bar tape, otherwise it is all original, pretty much in pristine condition, with a beautiful original chrome fork. I have new black hoods to install. Reynolds 501 frame rides great. I brought it up to the ADK for a 25 mile charity ride, on of course one of the warmest days of the summer. Six bottles of water during and after the ride and I barely peed! The PUG was very comfortable and probably the longest ride I've ever done with drop bars, not bad for a guy in his mid 50's. The low gearing is a little tall for a couple of the hills.

I can't help you for the basket, because there is no brand on it, It's actually just an old basket fitted by the previous owner of this bike...

But maybe you can find something similar on ebay https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=...sket&_osacat=0
