Chasing History

Postby whatsinaname » Thu Apr 11, 2013 10:14 am

Hi all,

I was given 3 bikes yesterday

1: Peugot Perthus CR500 steel frame, full 105 groupset, looks like never ridden. # y2c65395 8X.

2: Carl Wilson Willo, Full Shimano 600 groupset, as new. # scwa10510.

3: Clem Eagles track bike, built new 1952-3 for the guy who gave it to me, has his name handpainted on top tube, will get the numbers off this one today.

I will get photos of all 3 in the next day or so and post them.

In the meantime can anybody shed any light on any of the above

Thanks guys n girls

Clem Eagle, circa 1953 she had full Shimano 600 ensemble with the fanciest detail I have seen

Wow. Neat bikes. I've got a soft spot for 70s/80s steel, so I prefer the Willo, but the Clem Eagle looks great too. 8)
