    1987 Peugeot Tourmalet

    Hi everyone,
    I just picked up a 1987 Peugeot Tourmalet.

    Just wondering what you all know about this bike.
    Everything on this bike is original, even the tires and they look as though they have hardly been ridden.
    It has Shimano front and rear derailers, dia compe brakes, a nervar crank, rigida wheels, and the frame says peugeot fabrication--HLE. What does HLE mean?

    It is green with orange and yellow stripes and orange bar tape. It rides as though it is brand new.
    Any info would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    HLE stands for Haute Limite Elastique, which translated means something of high strength.
