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?
Over all this success one should not forget about the wide range of semi-racing bikes which the French company produced and offered to the market. These bikes did benefit quite a bit from the reputation Peugeot had built with its racing success. One of these pieces is our Peugeot PR65 from 1978.
