Nice bikes, classic 70's and 80's! Care to identify the year and model? Not terribly good at Pug spotting yet, but is the white one with white bar tape possibly an 88 Versailles?

Also got a Peugeot Premiere Carbolite frame (too big for me but used as a parts donor for other builds) no pictures of this as it's not actually a BIKE at present.

I wish I could find a better picture of this one, but I can't find one, and I don't own it any more (sadly!)

No picture atm, but I've got a nice Louison Bobet SS conversion. Only European bike I ride on a regular basis.

And I don't know why, but I find that "French bike of unknown origins" there to be a very sharp looking bike. Probably because it is color coordinated while most of my bikes are not.

Not mine, but (at the risk of frightening people) here is a sample of the abandoned bikes I came across on a visit to Paris this year....




Too bad they can't be rescued!

Sorry. You are not allowed to just state you have one, especially a Bobet, without photographic evidence. I'm giving you 24 hours to come clean.

Just got back from a ride on the UO-8:


Red Hill Church in the moonlight.

Where'd everybody go? Thought everyone would be out, now that the roads have finally dried a bit.




Ottsville Inn. 10'clock Friday night, time to close up.




At the spillway last Sunday.
