A gentleman brings this Peugeot into the shop and wants to restore it. He explains that when he was a much younger man he delivered newpapers and saved up his earnings and bought this Peugeot when it was new. Vic looked at the bike and realizes it’s going to need an extreme amount of work to make it rideable, he gives the man an ballpark figure on the job and he agrees on the price – the bike has a lot of sentimental value to the owner and he’s happy to to make the investment.
Here’s the bike after Vic restored it.
A basic restoration cost $175. Other parts needed are an additional charge and included new wheels, chain, crank, bottom bracket, brake pads, cables and saddle.
