So I Get a Phone Call....

And this buddy of mine says his brother was thinking about me and had some "bike parts" he was bringing over to his house. He wanted me to take a look and see if I wanted any of it. Well.... yeah. So just got back. It looks like junk, but I see a nice Mavic MA40, a nice Weinman and several decent freewheels. I'll have to rummage through it all. Not bad for a "come and get it".

Sounds like a good deal- you haul the scrap away and get a few usable parts in return. I had a similar uo18 frame and was able to find someone (another BF member) locally to take it for free. I hate scrapping bikes but sometimes you have to do it.

Yep, they are Mafac, infac....

I laughed at my friend's brother... He called it a Pew-got frame.

Nice score! The only time I horribly mispronounce Peugeot is when remembering to spell it correctly. So in my head I say "pee-you-gee-ott." Works every time.
