Decided to take stock today, feeling a little overwhelmed by what I found in the shed.

The more I see that 525 Comp, the more I want one.

Anyway, bro picked up this Peugeot as a present for a friend. Looks like its a NS22(72 model), thats kinda missing half the parts. The tyres are 22", and something Ive never seen before are the 22" presta valve tubes(looks like itll be a little harder to source these).
Image

The second most aero tubes Ive owned, more aero than my CF bikes. First is the aerofoil pump.
Image

Euro import? Brakes are wired up backwards, plus internal routing. Now the braking on this bike is quite good, even though its using rooad blocks(BBB BBS-01). Would it also be due to having that cool diamond knurling on the brake track?

SImplex stem friction shifter
Image

5 speed Shimano RD. Take note of the internal routing
Image

Rear brake internal routing holes. Now I guess I need to find a brake lever, and a rear brake. Looks like itll be mounted to the middle of the chainstays, but what sort of brake would it use?

Now, does anyone have front and rear mudguards, and a rear rack? As well as a chain cover?

@Quang, the rear brake would be one just like the front brake, a normal calliper could perhaps do the trick too.
On most of the Peugeots I've seen there's been a sticker for Cycles Australia, the local distributor who were based in Brisbane. If yours hasn't got such a sticker then it could be a private import. Or it's just come off/been taken off at some point in the last 30odd years, that's a possibility too :lol: .

Just put this on the you beauty thread but maybe it belongs here too. Anybody want to swap a medium sized 1990 Izoard frame for a large (62cm TT) one? Complete and original but the front spokes are rusty.

A TWIN! Very nice, do you have a build planned? Modern or period? What's the rear spacing?
You've probably seen it but here's the catalogue

G'day Frog,

I plan to do a full respray in the original colour scheme and new decals via Cyclomondo. The frame is a 56cm square so a good fit for me, rear spacing is 126 mm. I plan to do the period (or pretty close to). I have a near on complete Ultegra Tri Colour (6400) Group, non areo levers, 7 spd ready to go. I'll lace the hubs into some Mavic MA 40s so as I said it may not be exactly year perfect but it's close enough for me.

Hoping to join this appreciation club ASAP!
Not sure if it's the SBS documentaries about the Tour De France or just reading through this thread, but going to scour eBay or gumtree and hope for one to pop up, spewing I missed out on a Tourmalet recently.

G'day Frog, mine is 27.2 as best as I can measure without a set of digital callipers. I'll know when my seatpost arrives. I also spent a bit of time with some cutting compound and polish and the frame came up a treat, I did a few touch ups here and there but I have changed my mind about the full respray. The decals are in very good nick so I am going to run with it the way it is.

Hi,

First post on the forum after being a lurker for a few years...........

A couple of years ago I scored this lovely Peugeot Professionnel 1000 at a garage sale. The bike came out here to Australia with a French team to do the now defunct Classic, and was sold upon their return rather than lug it back to Europe. I have another team bike bought under the same circumstances (Mavic RMO Liberia), co-incidentally using the same groupset.

Information about this model is thin on the ground, but I believe it was made for the 1994 season. Frame material is Reynolds 708, which as far as I have been able to determine is identical to 753, but with longitudinal stiffeners. Groupset is Sachs New Success/Mavic SSC with the exception of the wheels, which are strangely Shimano hubs/Campag rims. Perhaps they aren't original; nor is the seat, which should be a Turbo-Matic. Seat post is Primato, and bar and stem ITM. The last owner put a carbon fibre fork on and painted it yellow, though I got the original steel uni-crown fork in the deal. The model designation is something that I have never seen anywhere, including the internet; it's a PF1001X, with something like EFRS after the X. It's a bit hard to read after all this time. The nearest commercially available model was the PF1000E

Anyway, enough blather, here's a couple of snaps!

And the best thing is, after all these years, my bike and Salt and Pepper mills match......

A little bit of trivia for us appreciators of the Pug; they invented the pepper mill!
