The Peugeot family has been making water mills, knives, and hydraulic equipment since the mid-19th century. With the advent of practical bicycles, the company jumped in and began manufacturing bikes, beginning in 1882. That makes Peugeot one of cycling's oldest brands. Peugeot is especially famous for its racing team. Riders sponsored by Peugeot have won the Tour de France ten times, more than any other maker.

We believe this is a Peugeot PFN-10 bicycle from the early 1980s, perhaps 1982. Identifying Peugeots of this era can be very difficult.

  • It has a high performance frame, built with double-butted Vitus 181 steel tubing and Simplex dropouts.
  • The bicycle has been completely overhauled and lubricated.
  • Several of the components have been changed. It originally came with a Simplex control group and other French-made parts. It sill has its "Peugeot" branded crankset, but has been fitted with Shimano Exage Sport parts, with the exception of the SunTour ARX front derailleur.
  • It has a 6-speed Shimano HG freewheel.
  • Rims are Wolber GTX hard-anodized clinchers fitted with new Michelin Axial BiSport 700 x 23 tires

Shimano PFN 10

The Shimano Aero brakes are real improvement on the CLB or Weinmann brakes that it came with. We believe this is the original fork. Originally the top half of the fork was painted. The remaining paint looks like it has been removed. The flat fork crown means longer fork blades and a more forgiving ride.

From the back. Brazing seat stays to the side of the seat lug makes these tubes longer and creates a more forgiving ride.

Peugeot crankset

This Peugeot-branded crankset is actually a Stronglight 104. This also tends to confirm our dating this bike to about 1982.

Peugeot 62cm PN10(?) Hybrid bicycle. Used, completely rebuilt and overhauled. $450.00

Center-to-center: 62cm seat tube x 60cm top tube.

This bike was built up from a Peugeot three-tubes double-butted Reynolds Peugeot frameset with forged dropouts. The bottom bracket was re-tapped from French to English dimensions.

Our assigning it the PN10 model designation is a best guess. Since it does not have braze-ons but does have graphics updated from the early-mid 1970s, we dating it to the late 1970s.

  • Wheels: 27" with rear Shimano 400CX cassette hub and the front is a high-flange Shimano hub.
  • Gear control group: Shifters are ShimanoA20 Rapidfire Plus STI hooked up to Shimano C20 rear and Tourney front TopSwing derailleurs.
  • Bottom bracket has been re-tapped to English with a cartridge bottom bracket connected to an SR/SunTour PFF crankset. It's a compact triple crankset paired with a medium-width rear cassette.
  • The stem offers a higher rise position and the bar end shifters offer both additional hand positions and the ability to stretch out.
  • Additional accessories: Soma fenders, Greenfield rear mount kickstand and water bottle cage.

Peugeot 62cm Hybrid bicycle. Used, $350.00

This bike was built up from a Peugeot UO-8 frameset, the iconic Peugeot from the 1970s. Its seat tube separated from the bottom bracket shell and we had it repaired. The bottom bracket was re-tapped from French to English dimensions.

The bike has been completely serviced with fresh grease, including the headset.

It has been built up with a highly upgraded set of components, including:

  • The single-wall alloy QR wheels are 700c. 
  • The rear hub is a Shimano HG50 7s cassette hub.
  • Gripshift 400 shifters
  • SunTour XCT alloy brake levers
  • The crankset is a SunTour XCT triple with 175mm arms attached to a cartridge BB.
  • It has an alloy micro-adjust seatpost.
  • Fenders and luggage rack are included.
