This is my retro-WW bike.

Pretty much finished working on this bike and thought I'd share with you all. It is an 85 Peugeot "Fibre de Carbon" bike with a full Mavic SSC group. The frame had a lot of scratches in the aluminum so I spent A LOT of time wet sanding it then polishing it.

It was my daily commuter bike for a year then I decided to restore it and haven't really even had it out yet.

Headset: Mavic 310 SSC
Handlebar: Mavic
Brake Levers: Mavic 430 SSC with brand new modolo hoods
Brake (Front & Rear): Mavic 430 SSC
Cables: Simplex shift cables and Jagwire brake cables
Chain: Shimano
Pedals: TBA
Crank Arms: Mavic SSC
Chainrings: Mavic SSC
Bottom Bracket: Mavic 610 NOS, just put on bike.
Derlr (Front): Mavic 810 SSC
Derlr (Rear): Mavic 851 SSC
Saddle/Seatpost: Selle San Marco/Simplex 25mm
Wheels/Tires: Mavic MA40/ Vittoria Evo Corsa

The pedals are on there aren't going to stay.

Would love to hear what you guys/gals think!

That Peugeot looks magnificent, you did a great job.
My first bike was a Peugeot so they will always have a special place in my heart.

Superb!

BTW, is that one of those frames Vitus made for Peugeot at that time?

Jeeze -- I remember working in a bike shop when I was in College and wanting that exact bike! You must throw it on a scale for us without pedals.

I'll never forget the sight of Robert Millar dancing on the pedals on one of these frames in the mountains of the Tour. I was there to see him go up Guzet Niege in 1984.
