Me too.

Now guys.. What am I going to build it up with? I want to stick with period stuff but I really prefer sti or ergo shifters.

Suggestions welcomed.

I'm thinking about selling off my campagnolo group and going back to 600 tricolour or something period for this build..

To give you an update,

I decided on tricolor but after sifting through the original catalogues I figured I'd build it with the correct spec - 6400 series with 7 speed DT shifters.

Image

So far I have brake levers, front and rear derailleurs and a headset but I'm on the hunt for the rest. I will go with a turbo saddle and white bar tape too.. That looks like a 600 stem and seatpost so I guess I'll try and find some for reasonable money.

I've got the correct rear hub also but I'm trying to figure out what wheels to lace them too.. And what those bars might be, cinelli?

Nice! With front and rear lights *both* intact. My kids and I have recently finished getting a 1978 Gitane Concorde folding bike back on the road and it is huge fun to ride.

I like the fact that it has the original bungee straps,was a pain to fish out of the steel pile especially when the straps got caught up and almost cut them off and left behind,wasnt till i got it home that i realised that they werent just any old bungee straps but were part of the original rack,the straps are wrecked but the end clips are still intact.Getting some great stuff at the tip recently,1960s barbers chair,old trestle tables.Saw a couple of bikes recently that looked pretty special but they were too far up the pile.Still amazed that people throw this sort of stuff away

They used to give the fold ups away when you bought Pug (car) in the 70's. I'm sure many were never used.

Hoping someone can help me identify this Peugeot i saved from the tip yesterday. Year, model any info would be appreciated.
AVA stem, Mafec 'racer' brakes, Simplex rear derailleur, Sun tour f/derailleur, Normandy hubs, 27" rims unknown, no tubing id and no serial number under bottom bracket unless they stamp them elsewhere. Never dealt with Peugeot's before. Is it gaspipe, or worth restoring? 57cm toptube.
If anyone's interested in it, let me know because i am trying to clear out my bikes, not add more, just thought it was too nice to get scrapped.

Well, after a bit of Goggling (should have done it earlier) its seems i have picked up a 1973 Peugeot UO-8.
Appears that there was also about 1 billion of them made so not worth bugger all.
Still its a nice looking bike and my size....

I haven't ridden mine for years but I always remember it was nice feeling bike to ride. I actually put singles on one in 1977 when I started racing and more recently rode another with good 700c wheels for a while with a group just to take the pi** a bit out of the expensive carbon bikes in the group. Yours was worth rescuing

Agreed. Strangley for a frame made from gas pipe the old UO8's are a rather pleasant bike to ride. I think it's the slightly smaller diameter metric tubing (other than the top tube which is actually a little bigger the British tubing). The low trail front end geometry and the longer fork blades and stays.

Thanks koen! You've solved the mystery of why there are so many Peugeot folders kicking about.

I've been given this lovely Ventoux.
It needs a bit of medical attention but hopefully will be fighting fit and ready for riding (by brother in law) at Beechworth L'Eroica at end of March.

Don't worry. It's got real bars and stem now. I'm gonna keep those monsters for something special.

Apparently it got driven into the garage on the roof of the car.
Anyone got a fork with 204 mm steerer tube? I'm guessing it would be French threaded?

Ps I really want you to save that ventoux.. I love mine, I found it on the side of the road in great nick but with a broken chainstay cable stop. It even had nice wheels!

It's such a great riding bike even though only the main tubes are Reynolds 501. I recently had it built as a single speed but I've had a modern 10spd campy group on it too and it was stable and responsive to sprinting/climbing despite the bit of extra frame weight.

I've now built mine up with a salvaged 8spd sora groupset from a few different roadside pickups and it's still a form favourote.

I think I may have a steerer in the shed for you I'll PM you .. Maybe gripsport can fix that fork? It'll be worth the effort.

Thanks lunar c. I checked the fork threads and it's English as you say. Should make replacement a bit easier
Thanks for the gripsport tip off too. I'll check out the repairability options. I really like the look of the fork so would be nice to keep it or replace with similar.
The frame looks ok structurally otherwise.
The rear rim is toast though. Split in lots of places.

Morning all

Anyone familiar with an alloy Pug mountain bike marked Excess? Google has been no help, nor has cyclespeugeot or retropeugeot. The readr derailleur is marked Shimano A 8SIS and I can't find that anywhere either. Nothing in disraelligears or fleabay. I'm at a loss as to how old it is or where it sits in the Pug quality spectrum, and so what it'ss actually worth. This is the beastie. I'm looking at it as a transition bike for my younger son who's outgrown his 24" kids bike but isn't quite tall enough for the small-framed Tourmalet that's waiting for him - he's almost tall enough but finds the road bike handling a little unnerving.

Cheers,
Duncan

Looks like a nice bike, pretty recent (~ late 90's to present) standard low to midpriced mountainbike. The components could give you a date. If its that bike on ebay and I wanted and had a use for it I'd pay maybe up to $100 for it. It could be worth more and especially if its going to get ridden alot??

That's the bunny. It'll get well used and it looks to be in reasonable nick and with new tyres, so I'm feeling a bidding spree coming on... :-)

I picked up a Giant from the roadside and I think it had that rear mech. It had components that were like a late 90's cheapened version of early 90's Deore. I just put the cranks on a mountainbike I was fixing. Alloy cranks but chainrings steel with all three bolting on as a unit. Can't see from the pic if the pug is the same.

While we're on the subject - when did Peugeot stop selling bikes in Australia? And did they sell through a distributor or via the same channel as their cars?

Thanks koen - I was curious about the rear mech. It sort of looks Deore-ish, but obviously isn't. I don't know my mountain bikes at all so I'm struggling a bit
