I love to look at all the bikes on your site!

Here are some before and after pictures of my 'current classic', a 1974 UO-18 Peugeot Mixte.

This was truely a labor. Of love? Maybe...depends on who you ask. If you ask me, then definately yes...but hubby? Not so much. I did the parts shopping and he did most of the wrenching. There were only a few parts that went on with no issues. I think the bar tape and kickstand are the only two I can recall!

Stem: Nitto DirtDrop (and 2 hours of sanding because it was .02 centimeters too big!!)
Handlebars: Nitto Moustache Bars
Brakes: Sheesh...I forgot, but the first pair I bought didn't work.
Saddle: Brooks B12 Ladies
Pedals: MKS Touring Shorts (from Rivendell)
Rear Derailer: Simplex S001 Short Cage
Front Derailer:Simplex 102 Front FDF102
Shifters: Silver Shifters (from Rivendell)
Brakes: Dia-Compe Mod 750
Wheels, freewheel and chain: I don't know what brand, but City Bikes in Portland hooked me up.
Tires: Bontrager I use this bike for my commute to work during the warmer months and it rides great!
