Assembling the Pieces

The Peugeot project is finally advancing to a stage that I can almost ride it. The first stage of the project has been replacing the old plastic saddle with a Brooks B-17, and I put on some Velo-Orange Belleville handlebars. I'm now just waiting on the Tektro inverse brake levers before it will be ready to ride, which will hopefully be next week. I'll be taping the bars with orange tape and shellacking the tape for a nice amber brown finished color. Long term, I'll be adding fenders and racks, too. This has been in the works for months, so I'm pretty excited to get it nearly road-ready.

Oh, and the photo is terrible on purpose so that the finished product will still be a bit of a surprise (yeah, right).
