So Long MotoGT

 


It finally got sunny and warm enough for me to list this bike on Craigslist and it went fairly quickly.   




I did love this bike, I loved the fit and the ride and the quirky Frenchness, and I did do a complete tear down and rebuild in 2018.  I only rode it about 2 or 3 times a year on short rides and so I figured I should find it a home where it could get some more love.


With a 5 speed freewheel, friction shifting and center pull brakes this was my most old school vintage ride but when it only gets ridden a few blocks to the French bakery once in a blue moon its tough to justify keeping it.


And then there were two.  A few years ago I would have never dreamed the stable would fit on one bike rack lol.  I reserve the right for more bikes to filter in but I think I will try to "survive" with just the Handsome devil and the Nishiki.  If I do end up moving in 2022 it will be much easier to do with 2 bikes than with 6.

  1. Hi Ryan,

    I’m looking for a refurbished 1974 Peugeot road bike, preferably in green. Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    1. Well in addition to Craigslist and FB marketplace you can look at bike Co-ops, there is also the Bike Forums website, classic and Vintage section where you can ask if people in your area know of any Peugeots near you.
