A top of the range 1980s Peugeot Perthus Pro gents road bike made with the lightest and Reynolds flagship tubing Reynolds 753 expertly hand brazed together with Simplex drop outs. The bike is kitted out with a full compliment of Shimano 600 all of which is in excellent condition and fully functioning as it should. The wheels are made up from Shimano 600 hubs laced into Mavic Gel 280 rims which judging by the outer rim wear or lack of it! They look like New old stock. The bike has been meticulously cared for by its owner for the last 30 odd years and it has remained in beautiful condition.There are a few little touch ins to the paint which the original owner applied as soon as a scratch or chip happened, this meticulous care has kept the moisture out and prevented any rust spots as was intended. The decal set has recently been added to rejuvenate the bike as the originals had lifted in parts and gone discoloured. The original 753 decals still remain on the forks as correct replacements couldnt be sourced at the time. Im sure H Lloyds will have them and will only cost a few quid. The bike has also undergone a recent full service to include brand new Vittoria tubular tyres, new bar tape, new chain and all new inner and outer cables.
All bearings have been stripped out, cleaned and repacked with fresh grease. Both wheels have been trued and tensioned and the bike now rides faultless and will give its new owner many many miles of trouble free cycling. The frame measures 56cm from centre of BB to top of seat tube. Its 54cm from centre of seat tube to centre of headtube.
This is an extremely rare top of range model from an era when Peugeot made bikes to compete directly against the quality that we know the likes of Raleigh were producing. This French classic will only increase in value the longer you own it!
