Hi Retrobikers,

After collect bikes and bike parts for over a year now. I think its time to start my first build. I started my journey because of my long lost ATB. It was stolen years ago and haunted my thoughts even 19 years after it happened. The bike was a Peugeot Safari Camel-mustard color with a Sachs-Huret Aris PowerGrip shifter system and an Sachs-Huret Classic 3500 Groupset. It wasn’t super advanced, expensive or extraordinary, but i loved it.

Last year i started collecting parts in order to rebuild one or at least make something that looked like it. After a few weeks i found a Peugeot Safari Fuchsia-Violet with Aris TwistRing shifters and Classic 3500 group, then i found and Altitude, a Pro Team, and two Magnums. The first idea was to equip the Peugeot Altitude with a Sachs Rival group. But collecting Sachs parts proofed difficult. After a year i have collected enough parts to start three or four builds.

Then i few weeks ago i stumbled upon a Safari Camel-mustard. Bought it observed that it was a little bit different than my old bike and started my first small build.

First thing is to transform it in to my old bike. If i can find the parts i put a Sachs Rival 7000 group on it.

nice, dont see too many of these. I've just put a few pics of my pug python up, some similar parts to yours.

if you happen to have a set of the peugeot handle bars uncut let me know - mine have been cut down and are stupidly narrow!

Unfortunately they where destroyed in the removal process. They where however not Peugeot grips but some cheap nameless rubber ones.

Maybe some local newspaper could publish this story and a picture of the bike? After all this is like the movie The Love Story for crying out loud.
