Yes.

Carbolite is Peugeots equivalent of Raleigh 18-23 high tensile steel, but Peugeot seemed better at making a lively feeling machine, mixed with a dollop of Gallic flare.

I like mixte frames. Everywhere else they're viewed as unisex machines, but in the UK they're regarded as girls bikes because they don't have 'crossbar'. More fool them.

Would happily do so, if in Devon or Cornwall!

I didn't have time for details, is this likely to be a 700c machine? If so, I might just use bits off the Scott to make an ancient/modern hybrid, as I don't suppose for an instant the bike has any vintage value.

Gears work. brakes ok, but the rims are so rusty it would file the blocks off. Amazing wide range 5-speed block. I'll go count the teeth later, but the low sprocket looks 36 or bigger.
