The Bicycle Thread

I'm sure there's a few bicycle enthusiasts here that have a bike or two or ten in their garage. I consider myself a casual bike enthusiast and now gravitate to comfort or hybrid models. Still enjoy restoring older bikes that have languished in garages for a few decades. Here's a couple of vintage bikes recently acquired. Up first a mid 80's Peugeot Provence mixte frame unisex bike. This is made in France to Euro specs with a Sachs Dolmar group set. Second is a 1964 CCM Continental that I picked up for 10 bucks. The grease on this bike was so petrified that gas would not soften it. A soaking of light oil and 48 hours did the trick. Bike is now complete except for a shifter cable and white hand grips coming from France. This bike was top of the line and has a 6 volt generator built into the rear hub. No alloy metals on this one. Built to last and tips the scales at 42 pounds. I hope to get one or both bikes used in the local movie industry. They pay very well for vintage collector cars and props that they use even as background vehicles. New or old feel free to post your rides here...
