Given Stevie’s colorful entry yesterday, we’ll be holding tight to that theme today. This is Darrell Y’s Ketchup and Mustard 1983 Peugeot PB14.
Good Morning Cameron, For your consideration. 1983 Peugeot PB14
This Peugeot PB14 is my mid-life crisis bike. I picked it up in the south suburbs of Chicago from a Craigslist ad. After carrying the red and yellow color scheme perhaps a bit too far a friend called it the McBike (alluding to the ketchup & mustard color scheme) so I named the bike Heinz. Sometime during the bike’s life someone had upgraded the crankset, derailleurs and brakes from what had been installed in 1984. I built a new 700c wheelset using Maillard hubs of the era and added the Selle Italia Flite saddle and Fizik handlebar wrap.
