I’m not sure if that is what Peugeot really means, but it should !! That’s if you get it through the BPA, we have a steady hand a keen eye. its always fun when you get the challenge of building a classic bike from the frame up. As in this case, we had the frame and fork, they gave us the OK, and it began. We don’t get to choose parts, we offer them, and the frame tells us what she wants to look like. In the end, well I believe she knows best, it rides as good as it looks..
The frame, fork, and headset- Peugeot Mixte
- what we added
A brushed white vintage Shimano 105 crankset, nice but had some flaking and paint chips by the pedal bolt mount. So we cleaned it up, taped it off, and painted the crank end gloss black. It now looks like a match stick, be careful not to strike a fire when pedaling.
