Hello there, i have recently purchased a bike which i believe to be a peugeot . it has been painted but i am intending to restore it to original , can anyone help as to identifying the model . the frame minus bottom bracket weighs 2.0kg and is 54cm. there is a serial no. under the bottom bracket which as far as i can make out reads Y8090591 but i am not sure about the 5. i have taken the paint back in certain places and it appears to have been white originally. i will include as many pics as i can to aid identification . The groupset on the bike is shimano 600 6400 throughout except for the calipers which are golden arrow 105 . The dropouts are simplex . The wheels are ambrosio super elites with shimano 600 hubs .The bars are cinelli.

    Can you post some pictures if you have a moment - may help jog someone's memory when they see frame shape etc.

    Hi

    Any pictures yet? Am just conscious that we may be able to help and don't want this to drop off people's (bike) radar.

    Best regards

    Yeah, pictures would be good, otherwise it's difficult to id a bike from a manufacturer that used to be really popular. Ihad a peugeot when i was a teen, but it was just a cheap one.

    He hasn't been back since he posted the question nine days ago, so I'm guessing not.

    if there're no pics, perhaps there're some superb decals?

    The fact it's running Shimano 600 means that it wasn't a pile of junk to start with.

    Perhaps an old team bike that repainted and part of the selling on process? Would explain the serial number ......

    A decent replica at least.

    Maybe he's gone away on holiday and will post those pictures when he comes back. Can't wait!

    Agree completely - be really good if we can help him out and maybe unearth some 'hidden gem' of an old team bike: get the provenance sorted, full resto, that sort of thing.

    Hopefully he'll be back - if he is on holibobs then hopefully he's having a great one as well.

    Yes, let's hope so. If only we knew where he was holidaying - we could send him a card, or something. Perhaps the OP will log-in from abroad and tell us, so that we can all wish him the very best for the remainder of his stay. Fingers crossed!!

    Exactly - it would be great to move this forward.

    Wise words there Matthewfalle, and thanks for the great posts. I've just hired a private detective to see if we can track this guy down on holiday. It's heartwarming to see we're all determined to help this guy to the best of our ability, regardless of whether he gives a sh1t or not. I'll keep you informed!!

    Why the anger? All we are trying to do is help the guy - as many, many previous posters have said, we don't understand that why anything that falls out of comfort zone invokes horrible, sarcastic posts.

    It's quite sad really.

    No anger at all, Matthewfalle, thanks for posting. Just like you, I'm absolutely determined to get to the bottom of this! Think of it as a 'race to the bottom', so to speak! :lol:

    Must be away for a fortnight. Wonder where he's gone. Hope the weather's nice for him.

    Agree on both counts. Somewhere hot - like properly hot. Antigua, Barbados, Jamaica, Trinidad, Tobago. That would be nice.

    I hope he goes on a couple of nice excursions, 'Old Town at Night' and '4x4 trekking' would be fun. Also, perhaps a trip to the water park?

    He did all that yesterday, according to my P.I.'s report. Boat trip on the schedule today, followed by a traditional flamenco display tonight.

    My back garden is well hot and nice and quiet. It rocks. Hope where he is is the same.

    Maybe he'll have his wallet nicked and won't be able to afford to do up the Peugeot. What then?

    Hang it on his wall until he gets enough money to resto an ex team T de F competing bike.
