Hiya , Yes it is all original (apart from tyres) Has been ridden gently since rebuild and the "death stem " is a worry!

Still have a few others in the stable to choose from

That's a killer Pug collection, @1simplexnut .
PS - HERE is a resurrected thread dealing with death stems you might be interested in.

Sure thing, Auchen. Here's a couple.
I also have a thread I wrote on it as I built it up. You can search on that if you'd like more.

Guys,

Recently restored a long journey Gitane 80's (not much of the heritage that I could gather). Happy to see she is on the road again.

Hi, first post, glad to be here. I am the new owner of a (what I believe to be) 1988 Peugeot Chorus with R531p frame & the complete Campagnolo Chorus group (this one: https://www.peugeotshow.com/1988fr/1988fr_04.jpg). Unfortunately no Reynolds decal or paper SN on the frame anymore (the frame SN is there, but it's not useful as far as I know), but maybe someone here can confirm from the looks. It shifts by itself a little bit, but I just noticed that the RD is missing the B-screw, might be related. The freewheel's a little noisy, too. In any case, here are some fresh pics! Let me know if I'm fooling myself...

I just put this together for my first L'Eroica 2014 prep rides. A black 979 was the first real race bike I had back when little Bikegeek1968 was a junior racer. That one was full SUper Record, this one is full Mavic, even the bar and stem.

Beautiful bike! I have one of those 531P frames too, but it's not built up as nicely as yours. It's light as a feather, though!

New here, but thought I's add a couple of my 4 bike and 3 frame early 70's Motobecane collection. Got a '72 G.R., '72 Le Champion, '75 Grand Jubile and a rare, matching mixte '75 Grand Jubile.

The Le Champion is Turquoise and white, presently running all original equipment plus Bluemels white fenders and a Blackburn rear rack (no pics). It's my daily driver. I purchased it from the original owner who used it to race and also cycletoured on it across the country.

The G.R. is a '72 that has been modified to be full Campy, including French headset, bottom bracket, seatpost, crankset, brakes, and as on several of my bikes, Lyotard platform pedals.

The Grand Jubile I bought from the original owner and, except for handlebar tape, cables and tires, remains stock. It runs the lovely long cage Jubile rear derailleur.

New to my collection and still in storage so unavailable for pic is a '75 mixte Grand Jubile that matches the silver and black men's G.J. above. Also bought from the original owner, needs to have bearings rebuilt and a good cleanup and polishing. Like it's sibling, it has Reynolds 531 main tubes and Nervex mixte lugs. Have never seen another of these, and have only seen pics of about 3 others, so they must be very rare. It has the same components as the G.J. above, including long cage Jubile rear derailleur.

Hi Motogeek,
Nice collection. There's several of us here who really like early 70s Motos. If you get the chance,please post some pics of the blue Le Champion. And maybe some more and better pics of the others. Would love to see them. Thanks.

I love the Motos too. I used to sell them in the 70's and I took a LeChamp home with me for a while. If they had a 22" frame I would have kept it. The tourquoise/white was a pretty bike. Motobecane sure had a good styling department. My first 10-speed was Gitane. My only other French bike was a Urago. My Urago was a production all-Campy bike. One of my mechanics ordered a custom one in white and it was gorgeous. Beautiful detail work on the lugs and flawless paint. I never rode it though because the frame was way too big for me. No photos, unfortunately. I have part of a large Urago dealer decal that I trimmed down to fit on my toolbox and a Mafac tool kit. That's all that is left of my French bikes.
