hey all,

does my beloved peugeot road bike count as retro?

reckon ive had it 15 years.

pink and black one - you guys will know it.

see if you can date it for me -

Spec as follows:

531c
Mavic open 4cd rims - built em meself as a 16 yr old!
105 shimano - 14sp i think (just put it up in the office earlier and cant be bothered to go look)
biopace front ring (think i might have replaced that)
ive got a nice black selle italia type seat.


I love it. Used to use it loads as a kid, cycling club outings, 15 miles after school / work over the years. Then we parted for about 3 years - just got it back 2 months ago. Been fettling. Stupid thing is i serviced it proper before it was stored - new cables, brakes tyrs the lot. so Its ok, just needs wearing in again.

Cant wait!

Now just got my self a clockwork orange! No idea what it is - (see my other post) thinking i might go for a bit of retro / road action. I'm thinking slicks and paint it black - bit stereotyped maybee? Any ideas?

Cheers

Paulos

7 speed and Biopace - that's got to be late 1988 to mid 1990 I think.

that could be right, cause i had it in 90 when i was 16, and the kiddy that i paid 150 quid to it for had beeb bought it by his parents and he had trashed the wheels doing a paper round! thats why i learned how to build wheels!
