Pug lovers have to see!

Sorry guys couldn't resist, but it is a Peugeot! This is my $5.00, didn't want to see go to waste, cleaner upper! Through some research found out it's an '87 (CP-16), unisex bike. It originally came with a top tube for boys that could be removed for girls. Unfortunately the bar did not come with the bike. Hey it's classic or vintage right, not sure which. It did clean up real nice.

Oh, that thing is adorable. Does it have a bell? It really needs to have a bell. And a basket, with daisies on.

But, that is a Pug. S'not too small to be a Pug, you know? I'd sport it.....if I were about 3' shorter.

If that bike gives you a weekend of peace and quiet while the kids entertain themselves, it will make it the most valuable bike ever displayed.

Thanks guys. The spokey-dokes as you call them were pretty beat up. I kept them and maybe one day I'll try to clean them up. Actually my boys are grown and off to college, but my Goddaughter loves to ride, "her bike" (in her mind), when she visits. Maybe I'll find a cool bell for it in the class forums.

Cute! Okay, Let's see all the C&V kids bikes we own! (for our kids, of course) Here's my daughter's Schwinn Lil' Chick. The chrome is extremely good quality; it's like a bumper on a '57 Chevy. The frame was repainted/pinstriped at some point before I got it for $10 at a flea market. Come to think of it, this might be the first vintage bike I ever bought. It does have a white flowery basket, but the big brother keeps taking it off so he can ride it without looking too girly. He does have his own bike.

That is too cute! Could start a dangerous trend for me though; I already have a little collection of vintage kid's clothes for kids I don't have... I do not have the space for vintage kid's bikes to be next!!
