Subject: [CR]Peugeot twenties "Half Racer"

i adressed the list a couple of days ago for the meaning of the term "half racer", thanks to all who helped! it seems the term is mostly due to the shape of the handlebar. Well, my '20ies Peugeot Racer finally arrived, i even managed to do a very short testride :) (man, those brakes are scary)

For those interested, find a few pictures (links to) of the monster at the end of that mail!

The frame has strikingly modern features, such as

- burnished welding seams (Oh, no lugs- am i OT????) - Headset integrates nicely with fork and headtube - a "double Monostay" (Did Ernesto steal his B-Stay idea here?)
