I've been getting the classic/vintage bug lately. Being from NYC does not help either as I constantly am surrounded by very nice gems that people collect/ride around here.
Before getting this bug, I was thinking of converting my 07 Specialized Hard Rock Disc Pro to SS, rigid fork, and using it for a nice commuter into the city to work (currently running Michelin slicks)....then the bug hit. Being on these classic/vintage boards do not help either.
My father has had a early 80's Peugeot Monaco hanging in the garage for years. Never really rode much. I took it out last week and started cleaning it up. Low end components, nothing special. Perfect for a commuter ! I took apart the rims and started polishing them up again, etc. I then started snooping around on what could be done to this bike. I wanted to do SS, flat bar, etc but I think it was more trouble than it was worth according to Sheldon Brown's site about compatibility issues with older french bikes/newer components.
I started shopping around on Craigslist for oldies but goodies, and stumbled across this old Univega. Clean as hell in my eyes, and already had the stuff done to it that I was going to do regardless (except i'm going to be putting on a rear brake for safe measures).
serial # is PG69859
$225 shipped from Cali to my door in NYC.
So what do you folks think ?
