1977ish Peugeot Mixte Fenders

Hi, I've had my mixte for a couple of months now, and I'm looking into getting the fenders and rack for the bike. Does anybody know where I could find those parts? My searches on craigslist and ebay haven't helped, all it shows me are bikes with fenders on them.

The fluted fenders are going to be the closest match to the OEM. My Peugot Grand Sporte mixte has steel (chrome or SS not sure) and they are fluted.

It will be hard to try to find a set that is original and in decent shape. Fenders get banged and dented up over the years.

These should fit perfectly if your bike has 700c or 27" wheels. They do (along with all fenders) take a bit if fiddling to install. They will look nice and are as close to original as possible, and much higher quality.

Thanks again, and yes the bike does have 27" wheels. I was looking at that website, and they even have a page on how to size fit and install the fenders. I live in an area that has been taken over by road bikes. Every morning, evening, and weekend they're out in force.
It is a huge sport around here, even though the people aren't very vocal about it. I live off of a one lane each way road, and they just re did the entire thing with a bike lane on each side. It's fabulous, especially since the speed limit is 30, and there are a lot of children here and people are very aware of the bicycles.
The only sad part about all of this is that none of these people are commuters so nobody has a bike similar to mine.

Another thing I'm trying to find is a saddle that looks like the original. My best guess is that the original was a black or very dark brown brooks. Does anyone know where to get cheaper brooks look-alike saddles?

Once again... Velo Orange. They have Brooks and their own. The VO saddles running about 15% cheaper. Still not inexpensive though. You can maybe find a used Brooks B-17 on Ebay for $40-$60.

Ebay, and it probably came with an Ideale saddle originally. I have one for my Peugeot when I get around to the renovation of it. I will probably put a Brooks (I know heresy) on mine because they are my favorite saddle and fit me very well.

It would probably have had an awful ADGA 28A saddle or a Peugeot branded Mattress saddle. The Brooks and Ideale saddles were mostly reserved for the higher end models.

I saved a good set of chrome fenders with original lights and bottle generator as shown on wahoonc's mixte from a junked peugeot. I can probably get the matching rack, seat and other parts if the donor bike is still around. The rack has rust issues.

Those lights are getting hard to find, the one on mine was missing the lens and reflector but I managed to snag an NOS one off Ebay France...

Yep.

The ADGA is a fairly poor quality saddle that has very few fans.

I think you could buy my 84 yr-old mother's 1975 UE-18.

Just a (totally shameless) suggestion, of course.

Nitto B-617 Promenades. I used them mainly because the Shimano thumbshifter I'm using is MTB-sized. Previously I had Nitto Montmartes which I prefer but they won't accept the shifter

I would, if I lived anywhere near you. Shipping an assembled bike is not cheap. Heck, shipping one that's been taken apart isn't either!

Wow that is a great price. From Florida it would have been somewhere near $80... But cb400bill is right, who did you use?

Sorry for slow reply.

I used UPS. The key factor, I suspect, is that I shipped from Kansas. I have an incoming bike from Texas, and the shipping is $35 only. Distance is a factor.

I know this is an ULTRA zombie thread but I see your fender and rack combination as the model of what I would like to do to prepare my U08 for the upcoming nasty weather of autumn. Your mixte looks great. This will be my first fender/rach installation and I want to be sure that I know what is needed. I do have one question for you:
- Are the fender stays and the fender struts attached together through the same eyelet in the rear since there is only one eyelet? If so were the provided bolts long enough or did you have to find a londer machine screw from a hardware store or something of that nature?
Thanks.

Hi Greg,

Good luck with the install! Unfortunately this bike was stolen a few years back so I don't have it handy to check. However, I do recall that the fender stays and the rack (a Pletscher) were attached to the same eyelet. On this particular Peugeot the eyelets weren't threaded so I used an M5 Allen bolt (not sure if it was the supplied one) with a Nyloc nut on the inside to hold everything in place. M5 hardware should be readily available at your local hardware store if the supplied one isn't long enough. The Velo-Orange system uses R-clips to attach the fender stays so I ran the fender stays to the outside of the eyelet/dropout and the rack supports to the inside. I've attached a closeup. Having the nut on the inside might cause problems if it doesn't clear the chain when you're shifted to the smallest cog so check that before you ride (this bike had an IGH so it wasn't an issue.)
