Never seen these wheel covers before. That alone should be worth something.
At a glance, the rest of the bike appears to be in fine shape as well.
It’s time to downsize my bike collection, so what we have here is a lovely early 70’s Classic Vintage 25 inch, Peugeot PX 10E serial # 1803231 The bike is in excellent ORIGINAL condition with good patina.
Perfect for riding, showing, L’Eroica, or just enjoying looking at with a glass of your favourite Burgundy
It was bought new from Holly Hanson’s bike shop in Saint John New Brunswick Canada. Everything is original except for the front hub which was changed to a very early Shimano sf hub ( still on a mavic monthelry rim ) a year after purchase and the chain as been replaced. As the second owner, I have had the bike for many years, and have ridden it ( with clinchers, different saddle and pedals ) during time in Florida. It rides, and performs very well and I have no problem riding with the carbon frame ol’ boys.
The original tubulars hold air, but are for show only. I would not hesitate gluing new tubs on and riding the original wheels with the regina 13-21 freewheel. Bearings are great and wheels are true, although the front wheel has chrome db spokes that show some rust.
There are a few marks and touch ups on the frame, as you can see, but nothing serious and no dents. When I first got the bike I cleaned it with some spray cleaner which removed the varnish Reynolds 531 stickers. These can easily be picked up on ebay, and the placement marks can still be seen on the original paint.
All the original components are there, and in excellent working condition. It comes with the additional short cage for the Simplex derailleur, caps for the Stronglight cranks, and new mafac brake blocks. The Brooks Pro isn’t even broken in.
Opening bid is $999 …………….. Good Luck bidding
