    Rebuild My Unkown Peugeot or a new bike?

    So I acquired this Peugeot MB around '02 for $250...it's a sweet ride for the cost. I am battling between building a nice hardtail from scratch or just rebuilding the Peugeot. I haven't been able to find out ANYTHING about this bike. It serial number is AI973008 if youre interested. I believe it was made by procycle in Canada after it bought the name from the French company somewhere around the 90's. I have no idea what the weight is of the frame but it's still in great condition and it catches peoples attention being such an odd maker. Right now it has:
    Shimano XTC Race cranks
    LX front and rear deraillieur
    Shimano 8 sp cassette
    Old Sram grip shifts
    Ritchey Logic head set
    Avid Ti Brake Levers
    Crap Shimano rear v-brake
    Crap Tektro front V-brake
    Mavic cross ride wheelset
    Bontrager Re-1 Pedals
    Manitou Axel 100mm Fork (heavy and needs some work)

    What do you experts think? Its 5086 Aluminum and has GREAT welds. It weighs in at around 29 pounds...pretty heavy but I think an upgrade could get it around 25 or less hopefully. Is it worth a rebuild or should I start over?

    Thanks

    Gotta love the wallpaper

    I thought you might be interested in what you have there....
    I can't help answer your question as I am in the same boat as you rebuild or go newer and rebuild.

    Wow

    And to think I was looking at buying a magnesium frame because I had heard they were so strong. Thanks for the link...that's encouraging.
