Peugeot Classic Road Bike 1970s
- Manufacturer: Peugeot
- Size: 58 cm
Peugeot was one of those early bicycle manufacturers which grew big and succsessful during the 20th century.
Their first bike was already built around 1882. But their reputation grew mainly due to their racing activities. Peugeot sponsored racing squads and cyclists from 1903 until 1983.
In this time they managed to win the tour de france 10 times and numerous championships, classics and one day races. Who has not seen the pictures of Tom Simpson and Eddy Merckx, winning the World Championships 1965 and 1967 on a Peugeot?
Despite this success one should not forget about the wide range of racing bikes aimed at the amateur market, which the French company produced and offered. These bikes did benefit quite a bit from the reputation Peugeot had earned themselves with their racing success
One of these pieces is our Peugeot which is based on a frame from the 1970s. It radiates all that aura of reliability for which the models of Peugeot were known and highly regarded.
The frame is built with Reynolds 531 steel tubes and allows for some competitive riding. This bike has seen some improvements like a Shimano Dura Ace wheelset with like-new Mavic Ceramic clincher rims and some mudguards for the rainy seasons.
This would be perfectly suitable for stylish commuting as now - naturellement! »See Details
- Condition: Used. The bike is in good working condition. The frame has no cracks, no dents and is not bent. Paintwork and decals are original with some small scratches. All parts have been checked and are working fine.
