Heyo

Morning all.

first time on this board, came looking for vintage bikes and boy did I find them. I've a 78 (I think) motobecane mirage that I've swapped on some sentimental bits from my grandfathers and great grandfathers old bikes (I'm 32, grandfather is still around but hasn't ridden since I can remember). Going to post it up once I get the 10 posts in and I finish up the last bits.

I'm a mountain biker by heart, have a stumpjumper and a fat bike to cover that. Haven't dedicated time to riding road, though have a first event coming up in September, 40 miles on the vintage will be fun.

look forward to some good times here!

Most certainly. I'm rather unhappy that I hadn't kept more of the parts. The Peugeot especially had at least a headset and cranks that would have made someone happy. Live and learn.
