Back in 2010 I posted the PEKA I acquired than >>> overhere.
A couple weeks ago I sourced a babyblue creature with dark blue panels saying 'PEKA'. PEKA-teampaint. Sticker on toptube says 'Univers Wielerploeg'.
I sourced the bike from the 2nd owner. He had acquired in the early 90s, after the original owner had passed away. The original owner had been a senior racer till high age and the PEKA was his thoroughbred through the years. Interesting: the frame shows brazed on cable guides, brazed on shifter bosses and cables under shell in combination with French Nervex lugs and a fork that is typical for an earlier era. The frame is a Joco, Jabo, RIH or whatever frame the rider liked (haven't found out that yet) and it is modified by Peter Serier and sprayed in PEKA livery around 1980.
The picture shows the bike after a brief overhaul by me and a couple adjustments in the specs. For example the 32mm tires and the Dura-Ace self extracting crank bolts are new. The cockpit comes directly from a Koga-Miyata FullPro-L. This evening I switched to a cockpit with shorter stem: 1st gen 3T Record, 3T Gran Prix drops, 1st gen DA levers.
Planned is a small ring with 42 teeth, so I'll have a very light 42-28 available.
