I’ll submit the Peugeot 653 Athena

Completely original spec apart from the wheels which are Mavic 4cd clinchers rather than the factory spec 2cd tubs.

Ok, seeing as entrants seem to be a bit thin on the ground this month, here's my 1961 Claud Butler Super Coureur to make up the numbers, build was last summer and a little off catalogue as I was inspired to go about it from a French angle to match the paint job with an almost completely French set of parts (expt Swiss/Belgian rims & British saddle). Only thing that didn’t sit right (pun intended) was the cheap blue saddle. This has now been corrected with a blue B17 Brooks, very comfortable it is to. Here’s the build thread;

Finished detail photos on page 11.
Definitely my lightest, fastest, best detailed bike so far, the Huret Super Allvit long cage rear mech is sublime…… 8)
