A little back story: I am the second owner of this bike. The first was a Naval Officer who purchased the bike while he was stationed in France in 1971. He brought it back to the US and his son inherited it and sold it to me through craigslist. Probably keeping this one classic as I work on other projects. This is the first bike I have purchased myself.
1971 PEUGEOT MODEL UE-8 // 54 cm
