    Paris Sport Commuter

    So now I've got this bike that I know nothing about, and there seems to be very little online info either.

    I have to admit it is pretty cool though. I'm thinking it may end up my regular to and from work commuter and cafe bike. Havn't decided what I'm going to yet buildwise. Heaps of possibilities. Anyone who can offer some insight into this bike would be appreciated.

    Note that the pic is as bought. It is a pretty sad sight I am well aware.

    Try throwing that pic up in the vintage forum. Just by seeing the reflectors in your spokes I'd guess it were a mid 80's bike. It's still not bad though, and a little work will make it a cool retro commuter. Good score there, and happy birthday.
    The ridiculousness of cycling clothes increase exponentially in relation to the distance from your bicycle.

    Hey it's got the 'alt' bar upgrade

    That could be a sweet bike with a little love...

    With some new bartape and without the bungees that could be pretty sweet. In case you don't know, wd40+crumpled tinfoil is fantastic for removing surface rust.
