Yes! Another Orange Peugeot

It's a 22-inch folding Peugeot Neuvo Style. Mark found it for me, and brought it by, today.

Once I get it cleaned up and rideable (assuming I can get tires for it), I'll post pix of the whole Orange Peugeot tribe.

Jon, great orange folder! I love orange bikes and folders.You can get 22" tires on sheldon's site IF they are I.S.O. size 37-490 or standard 550a/22 1 3/8.They are just cheap kenda blackwalls I think they are around 25 bucks,tubes too for 5 bucks.If they are I.S.O. 547 or 22/1.75-2.125 sorry you are out of luck.I looked for those for weeks with no results. Hope this is helpful.

With 2 racks and a low center of gravity, that is going to be 1 heck of a lil' speedster for hauling cargo! I haven't seen a nice folder like that in a long time.

I use one of these (in white) as my daily commuter. If you are having trouble to find tires you might consider switching wheels to 24 inch (ERTO 507 and use 1.50 inch tires. With a little tinkering they fit fine and I can now stop even when the wheels are wet. Changing the front brakes to vintage weinmann long reach helped also. Back brakes have proven more difficult to replace. Changing the bottom bracket this weekend (if I can get the fixed cup out--ouch). I could send you a picture if you are curious what it looks like. Mine is not as pretty as yours so keeping mine original is not much of an issue.

Bottom bracket eventually came out. French treading (36x24) wrong (right) threading on fixed (drive) size. Have found one new cup (sugino) and a 3 series spindle. Looking for the other cup now. Do you know anything about the headset?
