Heres my Peugeot Izoard with all original parts except for the front wheel(Aussie Velocity half-deep V?) Replaced the old tubes and tyres(which surprising still held air) with Zaffiro tyres, and the hoods to black as the white ones were sticky. The underside of the top tube was crazy rusty, and Ive removed and repainted the underside. You guys prob wouldnt be able to tell if I hadnt said anything.

Probably tmw, I will get another Peugeot, the Tourmalet in gun metal with the 300EX groupset.


Hmm, got offered $300 for this Peugeot. Thats basically $250 that I get for free since it cost me $50. I really do like the ride, but should I sell it? That $300 will go to fund for a lugged CF bike. And left over cash could be for another Peugeot which Ill eventually find. What do you guys reckon?

If you're interested in the money, chuck it on treeBay. If you're interested in the bike, keep it and ride it. Unless of course the money is more important.

I replaced rhe original steel bars with aluminium, put a carbon fork from an old trek on it which made a big difference. The original cranks had a steel inner ring which weighed a bit too. Made it a really nice bike.


Thanks Lunar, agree that the bike is heavy. I was hoping to keep it near-original but won't really ride it unless it's lighter (will keep parts anyway just in case). Anyone got recommendations or cheap components to suit?

Sell it, and pick up an even nicer pug. You can't say no to a profit like that!

Does it make me old that a bike I purchased brand new (in '89, incidentally, the bike in the ad is not an '87 model despite the listing) is now considered "vintage"?

I'm not sure, I was born in '89 though if that helps?

If I can find a PY10FC that'll be nice.

If the dude who offered will go ahead, then, I'll sell it to him.

Relatively, you are older than me and the bike your purchased. You're young compared to those older than you :mrgreen:

I will be selling an early 90's Tourmalet soon, in fair condition (a bit of surface rust) with mavic rims laced to sora 9spd hubs and 400ex 7spd group with DT shifters (sorry the original 7spd sti's were stuffed) and tektro dual pivot brakes. It's a friends bike I built up for her to use while she was in Australia and she's asked me to sell it now shes gone back to Germany. I'll give it a clean and post some pics up soon in case anyone's interested.

My mountain bike projects:

The Hurricane will need some TLC to get it running, I bought it as a bare frame on gumtree for $25 a few months back. The dropouts are out of whack and there is a fair bit of rust under the top tube where it's rubbed against something in the weather for years.

The Trail I bought for $15 (I love gumtree) as a whole bike with rusty french bits everywhere.

Slightly lighter now, and a lot more aggressive. Still a pleasure to ride, though as you can imagine a more sensitive steer :lol:

Many thanks to Lunar_C for his help with parts.

This is my first post here, can anyone tell me about a Peugeot Cadre Allege, there was one on ebay recently that didn't sell and it's my size and I thought it might make a good Randonneur; was wondering whether it was worth chasing down.
Thanks

Definitely worth chasing. Probably worth 50 to 150.
