WANTED:   Rigida rims posted by: Kurt K. on 7/12/2007 at 6:31:08 PM
Been looking for some Rigida rims - box-section aluminum hooked-bead rims, red or blue label. Need two 700C for my '61 Paramount (year of the actual rims not important) and a single 27" for my Trek 610 (the one I presently have on the rear has a nagging flat spot in it.

If anyone has some on hand, let me know - post a reply.


Take care,

-Kurt (cudak888 on BikeForums.net)

Refer to the attached link. Maybe this will help. I have an old AMF and the serial number is located on the left side part of the frame around the back tire. See link. Location 2.


I hope this helps.

Thank you for your response...I'll check that all out in the day light and give you an update. By the way, is ebay really the way to buy or sell a sweet ole bike? In your opinion...

The best way is to go looking the old fashoned way. Garage sale to garage sale.

AGE / VALUE:   Is this a Peugeot UO-8? What's it worth? posted by: Tom on 7/10/2007 at 7:09:15 PM
Best I can figure from my research, I have a late sixties UO-8. The serial # is 884037. It has Simplex downtube shifters, derailleurs, and skewers, Mafac brakes, Normandy hubs, ADGA saddle, AVA stem, and Lyotard pedals. Markings include "Record du Monde" and "Tube special allegete Peugot." It appears to be all original.

It's in good condition. Is it worth anything?

I saw one in excellent condition make around $160 a week or two ago on ebay. That is top dollar. I sold a similar condition one for $100 last year. If it shows it's age, I'd say $25 to $75. They made a gazillion of them. Yes, you heard me, a gazillion.

Warren's post is spot-on. These are delightful commuting or recreational machines, but only a NOS one would be considered collectible.
