    Might go pick this up tomorrow. Other than Peugeot there are no other names on bike. Anyone familiar with this?

    Awesome but I'm not sure if it's a POS (Peugeot Original Style) bike or not but good guess! Anyone else?

    Cool bike from a vintage standpoint. Creat if you're into refurbishing near-antiques (I think it's fun) but it can be a lot of work.

    How much passion do you have for rebuilding old stuff? I've done dozens of refurbs on old bikes like this and it's a four-hour + job. Most likely, it's going to need new:
    Tires
    Tubes
    Chain
    Cassette
    Brake pads
    Brake and shift cables & housing
    Grips

    Do you have hub, headset, and bottom bracket wrenches? You will need those to overhaul the bearings to make it functional again.

    Do you know if the suspension in the fork is functioning?

    Even in tip-top shape, this bike is going to be little more than a stylish utilitarian hybrid. Great for grocery runs and getting some cardio, but not reliable or fun on trails.

    Peugeot actually used to make quite good frames. By good, I mean they were solid quality, reasonable weight, and rode as well as anything else out there. I might do something funky with it, like single speed it with a rigid fork. Unfortunately, I really canít tell you much about that model, other than whether itís been ridden much or not, itís probably going to need a lot of work just because of the age. I donít think the brand has been available in the US since the late 80ís.

    The biggest question is... "How much?"

    People with old bikes on CL like to call them "Vintage" or "Rare" and ask a high price. IMHO, anything over $25.00 would be ridiculous. This is the kind of bike that you clean up, get in satisfactory working order and give to someone who can't afford anything.

    If it is over $50.00, find something else.

    Picked her up this morning. Fairly light bike and only thing I know about it's history is it's been sitting for years. Tires hold air and not dry rotted. Its a Canadian bike per the made in Canada sticker. Now I'm thinking late 90s bike? Came with new pedals and grips. After I clean her up and a tune-up I'll post more pics.

    Doesn't look bad. I'd take some sandpaper and white nail polish to the rust on the frame, and get some Winks rust remover from walmart and work a brush over the cassette etc.

    Get those bar ends about 90 degrees forward :thumbsup

    The fact it still has reflectors and an uncracked dork disc tells me it is cherry!!

    I have to wonder what the previous owner was thinking with those bars ends pointed straight up in the air.

    My father-in-law used to run his bar ends straight up like that. It drove me nuts. He said he liked sitting upright.

    Those bar ends brought me back to 2000 when I rode my brothers rhino mtb with bar ends. they will be the first to go. I will say with the bar ends pointing straight up it was actually a comfortable ride almost felt like a cruiser sitting so upright(had to test ride as is lmao) thanks for the idea of white nail polish and sandpaper as I have another white Peugeot road bike and a old white free spirit that needs small touch ups and was contemplating how to paint those little spots.

    Here she is all cleaned up. Gears and brakes adjusted.new pedals on. Shifts awesome! I noticed tires even still have the little rubber "hairs" on them. Looking at serial number it ends in 98. I'm thinking 1998 model???

    What gives? You took off the bar ends but left the reflectors and dork disc? Looking good though

    ALL of my bikes have their reflectors and dork. I do 95% night riding so all reflectors are a must. Just did a 30 min ride and my verdict is it's basically like my Peugeot road bike not very comfortable but VERY stiff and nimble and easy to manuever. Is the stem on this bike able to be raised? I loosened hex bolt on the stem but stem didn't move. Oh and paid $25 for this beast

    unscrew the bolt till it sticks up a little and then whack it down to break the quill loose at the bottom of the stem. you should be good to go after that. see the attached pic, the little blue piece is wedged into place and needs to be knocked loose.

    I will give the stem a good whack see if I can get it loose. I'm thinking the rockshox had to be added sometime in it's life bc the VERY little info on Peugeot mtbs I saw most were full rigid. Can anyone decode Peugeot serial numbers?

    Definitely not 1998, not with those cantilever brakes. my guess is early 90's.

    $25.00 is a great price point for the bike.
