Peugeot Mixte from Velo Cult
Velo Cult is a shop in San Diego that restores vintage lugged steel bikes. The Peugeot pictured above was stripped and powder coated and accessorized with an embossed Brooks saddle, Honjo fenders, Velo Orange racks and cork grips. "This is the ultimate vintage Mixte." And I'm guessing that the price is a bit steep (you can find out how much by emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org) -- which is just more proof that used lugged steel bikes retain their value.
By the way, Peugeot still makes mixtes -- using lightweight aluminum -- and sells them in Europe. It comes with a chainguard, rear rack, fenders, and lights.
The specs for this new Peugeot can be found here.
Given a choice, which Peugeot mixte would you want to own?
UPDATE: Bike Club of Falls Church, Va also has a vintage Peugeot Mixte for sale:
