Yesterday I got to reunite another owner with the bke of their younger days, and witness the smiles that come with that. This time it was a '72 or '73 Peugeot, a PR-10 model for those who are into Peugeots. Funny thing is, there's never any identifying label on their bikes... you just have to know what a PR-10 or PX-10 or PY-10 or whatever is and how it's equipped.
The bike was ridden a lot for 5 years, back when it was new, then life, as so often happens, took the owner away from riding for one reason or another. Now, thirty years later, he brought it to me to rejuvenate it so he can start riding again. Just the kind of project I love... first because of the happiness it brings to the owner, and second because I get to work on a kind of bike that just resonates with me... classic older road bikes.
That's the "after" picture to the left.
