VintageRide,


Looks like a very nice old Urago.

It's not clear about:

"....I was wondering about a clamp for the front shifter - he has another new one and was willing to make a template for me - seems a shame not to use it as it is new otherwise, also the mounting boss for the single down tube mounted shift lever broke off between the mounting points on the frame where the screw hole is and I was thinking of trying Jb Weld to secure it, otherwise I may have to try and use a more modern setup with two levers and a clamping band which would mean using a newer more modern style front derailleur."

1. Many of those bikes a had single lever mounting boss on the down tube. It looks OK in the picture???

2. JB Weld is an epoxy adhesive. They don't have the kind of shear or peel strength need to withstand the pressure that a shifter might generate.

Also, a Stronglight 49 crankset would be period correct for that frame. Nevar made some similar kinds of cranks in both cottered steel and cotterless aluminum.

verktyg - it seems the person I am buying it from was told it had been epoxied after breaking off, up until we were discussing this he had not looked into the claim until he put some force on the shifter boss with his finger and part of it came off. I guess that answered our question! If nothing will work to secure it we figured if I filed some of the protruding metal down it would be possible to put say some Campagnolo shift levers on the down tube over what is left of the original mount and that would keep them from hopefully moving. I wonder if spot welding or a wire welder would keep the the heat more local and not damage the paint - just trying to think of some options that will allow one to keep the single lever setup. I was hoping JB Weld might do the trick. And thank you for the crank suggestion, although being on a budget these days I was grateful the owner is helping me out with some very reasonable prices on some parts.

Simplex single sided lever clamps are readily available on eBay. They are usually pretty cheap.

bit of a challenge to believe her nippon fittings original to the machine. dynamo mount tends to indicate a tourist application. voting for 1976.

I thought perhaps it was finally time for larger image - I found a frame pump that at least is from around the time period and also managed to find an Ideale Model 80 seat, glad to replace the terrible plastic one originally on there as my second ride was much more enjoyable, I was tempted to buy a Brooks or new Cardiff but held out for something appropriately French.The original steel handlebars were too narrow at 37 cm so I replaced them with some alloy 42 cm Phillips. In an unrelated thought I saw a 1966 Peugeot PX 10 on Classic Rendezvous that had white delrin Simplex shift levers and front changer which started me thinking that the Mafac Course 130 levers on my Lejeune could have come out by at least 1969 - food for thought anyway. I am still amazed at how light feeling this bike is as it is not difficult to keep a good pace, I doubt the Michelin World Tour 27" tires are contributing much to the experience.

This is my Peugeot PR10. It's a work-in-progress right now. Riding season is over, so during the winter I'm going to replace the rims/tires, put on new red bar tape, add brown brake hoods, and maybe get a brown leather saddle depending on what's out there. Sorry for obstructing the seat in the photo, but it is the original leather saddle the bike came with.

Very nice! I've never heard of PAYAN before. Can you provide some history/details of the marque?

Early 1970's Manufrance Hirondelle. It is nearly IDENTICAL to my first "ten speed" purchased in 1971-1972. Found it here on Bike Forum, payed way too much for it (paid a handsome nostalgia premium!), and had it shipped from Colorado

The good old days, 1978! A few of my bikes today, the Peugeot PY10 I purchased brand new for $725.00. Lots of money for a kid in high school at that time!
