Here are a bunch of photos of my recently converted 1970 Peugeot PE-8. I am completely and utterly biased, but I think this is one of the most beautiful bikes I ever laid eyes on. It is definitely the most comfortable, fastest and most surefooted bike I have owned in years. This Peugeot was originally set-up for 27x1 1/4" wheels and I converted it to 650b. The fenders are original and adapted perfectly to the conversion.
