Hello all-

I had no idea that Peugeots were such a hot item! A friend of mine purchased one from a garage sale a couple years ago for about 30 bucks. I pushed her to get it because it was cheap, old, and it looked cool. I just called her and asked her if she still has it and if she wants to sell it to me. She said 50 bucks or take her out to dinner and it's mine. I pick it up Monday! From my memory it looks like the red 1978 below in the link. She still has the frame pump for it too. I remember she never rode it (we were rommates at the time and she got into choppers and tall bikes instead) because the brakes and shifters didn't work properly. My first vintage project!

I will post pictures as soon as I get the bike! I look forward to your inp ut.
