Peugeot DR10

Postby Earlyride » Sun Feb 05, 2012 10:20 pm

I have a Peugeot DR10 that is black with chrome lower forks and gold hubs. I've owned it since new (1980) and it is as close to original as one could want. Even the tryes are the original set.
It has always been kept under cover and the paint is almost flawless. How could one gauge its value?
Update: thanks all for the replies, still can't figure how to insert photo's for all to see.

To assess it's value, you need to ride it.

Bought my DR10 for $50 late last year off Gumtree. Original everything from approx 1978 - 1980.
On the surface it is a very ordinary bike, but I love the ride qualities.

Well the answer is not much I am afraid the kerbsides are filled with old bikes every clean up day.

This is a bit of of collector website so unless it's a bit special and not just a pretty standard model in good condition then I don't think you will get much interest to buy it here so I would advertise it for sale if you want to sell it.

The PX10 DU with the Vitus 979 tubing would be the DU worth some money but a standard Peugeot not much. I would start it on ebay at $49 odd and see how you go. I would expect around $150 but someone may really want the old anodised gold hubs or the Mafac brakes etc to complete their bike or you could just get a into crazy bidding war you never know.

They built them well though and a 1980's Peugeot could be easily renovated to give you another 30 years service if you wanted to keep it and it sounds like it really just needs a complete strip down and rebuild not so much as a renovation anyway.

Actually not...
I had the pleasure of talking to Mick Wilkinson about Peugeots today and got some of the story. He knows such a lot of history on the Australian bicycle industry and in particular Qld. Where to start?
A chap at Renault cars approached French Peugeot to sell Peugeot cycles in Australia. That was in the early 1970’s beginning out of Melbourne. The sales grew and the business was called Cycles Australia which, down the track, Mick ended up managing as the sales and manufacturing in Qld had grown by that time, other factors shifting the focus from Melbourne. Cycles Australia also made the Madison bikes and Goanna mtb’s very early in mtb history (mid ‘70s!) If you bought a 504 car you would find a Peugeot fold up in the back so they sold a lot of the fold ups too.
Something I didn’t know was that all the ‘early’ French made Peugeots were completely assembled in Australia from all the French parts. Importing complete bikes attracted an even more hefty tariff. I bought my UO-8 new from Annand&Thompson ,a car dealer in Brisbane, in 1975 for $196. This was a lot more than a Repco or Malvern Star ….which were about $120 from memory…but Euro prestige has always been worth something I ‘spose. Plus the mudguards still aren’t rusty.

About 1976?? Cycles Australia wanted to start using Japanese components and Australian made frames. French Peugeot required them to send a sample of the three models they would make to France first for approval. That was okayed so they built Australian Peugeots with Suntour components from then and put the Peugeot stickers on ‘em. Voila! ..DR10
Eventually Taiwan made everything cheap and the bike industry everywhere changed forever.

Mick Wilkinson was in Balmoral Amateur Wheelers when I first met him but has since been a long serving and now Life Member of Hamilton Cycling Club.
Cheers all, Owen

Do you know if there is a record of serial numbers or the "family tree" of Australian built Peugeots?
