    What would you do with an 80's Peugeot road bike?

    I'd say it's a late 80's early 90's Peugeot road bike that someone was throwing away and it's been sitting in my basement for a few years. Besides the fact that it was made in france, is there anything i could do to save it or should I sell it?

    fixie and peg leg time. Make sure to do orange or white rims and a 17" handlebar.

    It totally depends upon the quality of the bike, any pics?

    If it is in ridable shape (or not too hard to make so) and fits, I'd ride it on the country roads.

    i have pictures but the files are too big and won't load up.
    no major rust. good chain, good tires, fresh grip tape. the one thing that bothers me though, and call me crazy, is that it's made in france.

    If it's pre 1987 give it shine, buy yourself a merino wool jersey and hop on a plane with it to Tuscany and L'Eroica... http://www.guardian.co.uk/travel/201...ce-italy-retro

    Sell it to a hipster who will pay top dollar for a "vintage" frame.

    My dad has a custom built 1972 Jeneut frame he built up when it was a kid. I was riding it yesterday, still pretty fast!

    Any idea of a model name? How about tubing type or components? Depending on what model and condition it could get you a few hundred to spend on MTB parts or a be nice rider. If it's a low model in the line up then yes, SS or fixie conversion.

    Post a pic over on bikeforums.com in the C&V section and someone will be able to identify the model.

    Better models had P prefixes (i.e. PX10) and lesser were the U prefix (i.e. U08). Peugeots can be hard to ID exact models. If it's got Vitus or Reynolds tubing stickers, it's probably better kept as original. If it's only lightweight or carbon steel, convert to single speed or fixed gear and have fun.
