I am a financial analyst in London who uses VBA/MS-Access/MS-Excel and sometimes php to build financial models and portfolio valuation, trading and risk management tools. I also design ordinary websites too from time-to-time where I use html, CSS, JavaScript/jQuery and WordPress.

comment Vintage Peugeot tends towards the left when riding
It is hard to see but I think they are. Maybe OP can provide a more detailed photo. In the link provided by @batman there is a close-up of the dropouts which are clearly horizontal so if the model is the same I think we can be sure they are. In any case I have yet to see a vintage peugeot without horizontal dropouts.

comment Why is the front brake lever on the right if you 'drive' on the left and vice-versa?
@StephenTouset very old comment but thought I'd chime in - although the front brake is regarded as the more effective brake, if you are signalling you'll only have 1 hand on the bars. Keeping the bike under control whilst the front wheel is braking with 1 hand is much harder than if the rear is braking as the bike will self-correct in the latter case.

Now all I need is a crank puller to get the old cranks off and I'm good to finish the build

comment Fixed gear conversion - hub spacers
Yeah seems like that's the best way. I managed to track down some spacers but when I put them on there was not enough axle thread left for the nuts to get a decent grip on. Ditched the extra spacers and just tightend the nuts to bring the rear fork together (although I think it was actually at 130 so each rear dropout needed to come in 5mm). Seems to fit fine and it doesn't seem the stays are under a lot of stress.
