    Peugeot Vitesses ??

    I was wondering if anyone knows what year this one is ? Also it has 27" wheels, but I suspect they are not the originals, as they have Shimano hubs with Dura Ace internals, and the drive train is Campy. Does anyone know if it should have 700C wheels ? Anyway yes its another GW find from this morning.
    I'm not familiar with Peugeot's and don't know if this was a higher end bike and worth keeping , I still don't know if it will go into my stable. Let me know what you'll think ?
    GW Rocks !!

    Very classy, definitely worth keeping! Campa on a Peugeot is certainly not original, but who'd complain, right.
    Anyway, here's the original '84 PSVN10 :

    Twelve vitesses on the chain stay means 12 speeds.

    It's a PSN10 (aka Mont Cenis) circa 1986/1987. Cintrary to JOe's statement, the Victory drivetrain is original. The original wheelset was Mavic MA40 700C rims laced to Maillard hubs.

    I stand corrected, T-Mar!

    Cool where along the food chain did it fall, and is the Super Vitus frame a good one ?

    It was 4th from the top. Super Vitus is a good quality tubeset, but the end results depend on the skills of the designer and the builder. I myself was never fond of the Peugeot racing frames, but there are plenty out there who rate them highly. FYI, the name refers to a pass in the French Alps, just inside the Italian border, which was used on some Tour de France routes.

    I have very mixed feelings. My PKN-10E is a joy to ride, but the craftsmanship is substandard.

    A very nice component set (Campagnolo Triomphe drivetrain and Modolo brakes) on a frame of surprising lightness, as Super Vitus 980 is a tad lighter then Reynolds 531, I believe.

    Not to say that I think highly of these frames for an enjoyable ride, however. I'm pretty sure that it is due to the lightness of the 980 tubing that these things are unnessesarly whippy between the headtube and seattube. Any cornering done over 10 MPH gives you a very unsecure, almost suicidal, feeling as the headtube flexes half a centemeter against the direction of banking.

    Furthermore, the flexing of the PSV-10 also eliminates any advantage you would otherwise have with the lightweight aspect of them (my hotrodded PSV-10 is 18 pounds). I'd rather sprint with my Tawanese-made Raleigh USA Grand Prix (Reynolds 531)

    I definitely like my PSVN, with the same tubing. Of course, I only weigh around 145 soaking wet so I guess the flex isn't too much of an issue for me. I can barely tell the difference between it and my Tange2 Centurion.
