summer project, complete

i started out the summer wanting to build a single speed road bike. not necessarily from scratch, but that's what happened. after many ill-fated attempts at finding fully assembled bikes, i found this peugeot frame on ebay. a really light steel frame from the mid-80s. it feels like riding on a piece of paper. and i can't believe how incredibly hot it looks. well surpassing my dreams.

 

when i was a kid, we always had peugeot cars as well. my memory of them is not very fond. they always had some problem, the a/c never seemed to work on cross-country road trips in the summer, and the diesel exhaust smelled awful. i really get a kick out of having a peugeot again now.
