This is Michael G’s 1979 Peugeot PX-10 LE, which amazingly resurfaced 25 years after Michael himself sold it. Read the whole story here.
I bought this old Peugeot in 1979. I rode it and raced it more than 30,000 miles. I sold it in about 1985, when I bought another bike. Since then, 5 presidents have occupied the White House. I’ve lived in three countries and three states. I got married, bought a house, and had children. Then, in September, 2011, completely by coincidence, I found the frame in a used bike shop, with undeniable proof it was the heart of the bike I had sold more than 25 years earlier. I bought it back, paying the asking price, without even attempting to bargain down. It was a 1979 PX10LE, purchased from Cleveland’s great bike racing mentor Heinz Linke, at his shop, the Madison Cycle Center, in Lakewood, Ohio. Heinz passed away, but a whole lot of Cleveland cyclists will remember him. I’m on the hunt for appropriate parts. You can find the whole story here:
A bicycle is a gyroscope that takes you places.
