Another lost bicycle has come home to roost…
This lady is a late 70’s early 80’s Peugeot Gran Sport Mixte. My sister bought this bike around 1989 to use for college, I seem to recall having had a hand in it. It has been in storage since the mid 90’s apparently at one of my brothers’ houses. He is in the midst of a remodel and needed the room so “home” she came. I asked my sister if she wanted cleaned up or? But she is waiting on the AMF/Hercules, the feeling being it will better suit her needs at this point in time.
According to Retro Peugeot catalog archives the bikes is a U18E an “all weather touring 10 speed…for touring under all conditions.” But further research is proving otherwise.
Not sure what the future holds, it is a desirable Mixte frame in the large size (57cm) I am toying with the idea of a few upgrades and keeping it for Sunday afternoon pleasure rides…like I need another bike!
