Peugeotism

Postby Simonius_Titius on Thu 21/Jul/11 2:42am

Here is a place for discreet Peugeot love, away from the public gaze of the Road Cycling thread. I was just trying to make a photo folder but got a thread so lets run with that.

It would be mature and sensible to wait until page 3 before posting a page 3 girl, but that would leave the dorky stem computer as the pic which shows in the index. So here is Miss 1983 instead, thanks to MiamiJim at http://cyclespeugeot.com/Catalogs.html

This stem with built-in computer appeared in 1983 on one model.

Another innovation from 1983 was aero brake levers, only fitted on one aero frame model. The rest of the range didn't get them until 1989.

Mmmmm, Peugeot...

Actually, a Peugeot was my first introduction to the wonders of the derailleur - Back in circa 1970, un petit frenchman (Clement Sentilles) joined our primary school class, and rode a nice little roadie, such as the primitive eyes of Tinakori Hill had never previously beheld.

Peugeot supported a lot of rising amateurs in the golden days of the 70's and 80's through ACBB in Paris.

Good info & photos guys :thumbsup:

Now I know that Major Tom rode one n all but I’ve never liked them. It’s an irrational :blush: dislike but maybe it’s an “I’d rather have an X rather than a Pug” thing.

Remember kids it's only ok to drive a Peugeot if you are actually French :thumbsup:

Awesome collection!

I spent hours perusing that peugeot site try to work out what model mine is/was - this is my second frame of the same model.
Still not sure what it is though - super vitus, quill style bastard seat post.

Somehow got the bugger out. Needs a replacement bolt, but managed to get it to work with some kiwi ingenuity, a blow torch and some beer.

Slightly different set up than this now

I'd never considered a per-zhou because my schoolboy mate had a one and used to gloat about it too much. It would've meant conceding and I wasn't 'man' enough to do that. But i did like the emblem.

MY first real road bike with a deraileur was a Peugeot "paris/nice", in a "he's going to grow into it" two sizes too big (cheers Dad).

I had a new Moser frame a few years ago that needed a quill seatpost. I sold it rather than hunt for one. It makes for a nice tidy tube join.

Here is my old peugeot ventoux. This was a nothing special late 80s frame. the current build is certainly not authentic but it is nice to ride :) oh it was painted by cycle trading a few years ago. they even made new stickers

Looks very much like a Peugeot PSV10 which was made in Christchurch by Healing Industries. Doesn't look as if it's original colour as most of that model came in a Pearl White, they did however do a Blue one which I think was the first ones and they were, I think, french made. If you want to restore to original colour at any stage I have complete sets of the original stickers less fame tubing decal, just PM me. May also have original forks. They made two models this one and the PBN10 which was the budget version, you can tell the difference by the forks, assuming they haven't been changed.
