This Peregrine flies again!!!!! Before and after survivor restoration.

Here is my 1988 Peregrine Expert survivor. I recently scored this for free in  New Brunswick N.J. Everything is original right down to the bearings and tubes with the exception of the tires, grips, chain, pedals and cables. Born and raised in New Jersey, the best thing is the bike was originally sold in Riverdale at Warfields ten minutes from where I grew up. Happy to say it will stay in Jersey and stayed as original as possible. I put a lot of work into this and I am proud to say it came out better than I thought. I would like to thank Scott at Bicycle Tech in Lincoln Park for the tedious task of making these brakes PERFECT. These guys rock!!!!! Check it.........

I used 0000 steel wool with fantastik. I worked in a circular direction as to not make any cross grain scratches. It was an experiment for me and I was happy with the results. Thanks for the compliments. I really love this bike!

Thanks for the tip! big_smile The close-up shots are even better ... usually it's the other way around - That's when you KNOW it's good.
Looks AMAZING!  Enjoy wink

The perfect survivor to me always has the original shop sticker. I love checking out old shop stickers. big_smile
