    Project finished! Updated with photo - His 'n' hers matching Peugeot Festina frames

    I am currently in northern France, and ebay.fr is a whole new world of madness. Just round the corner from me are these two matching frames - Peugeot Festina replicas, 22 each! Plus the guy has had them up for a while now so I am pretty sure I will able to talk him down too.

    The 57cm looks like it has DT cable stops and a bottom bracket, as well as the seatpost and saddle. The 51 has cable stops on the head tube but no BB.

    What do you think? Fair price? Assuming they take 1" forks I have 2 of those at home.

    Anyway, here are the piccies:





    Thanks for looking.

    Will I have to break down in tears at a press conference, pledging 'I will return', too?

    Yes, but the flip side of that is that you get Pascal Herve as a personal valet.

    yes. Guess that compensates for the awesome jersey you got to wear with the dots on it O man, those long summers with my dad spent watching indurain, virenque, pantani... I don't care how much stimulants those guys used, the racing was so awesome!

    Buy the top one. Without digging through my catalogs I can tell you that Peugeot had several Festina themed bikes from entry level to high end. The bottom one is clearly a lower end frame.

    This is demented I know, but I have an '84 Peugeot PH10L sitting in primer.....

    Anyone have any links to better pictures of the actual team bikes? I'm not going to build a fake, or try and deceive anyone.



    No one with a working eye has ever taken my Raleigh Record "Team" for a Team Pro.

    Jim,

    Nice edit in my quote bubble.

    Having only seen a very few pictures of the Festina team bikes, I can't honestly say what year. A better route might be to figure out what years (If any) that internally lugged steel frames were produced for the European market as team replicas. That would make it a somewhat more honest fake, a replica of a replica.

    I did have my 20-30 boat anchor Record "Team" confused for a Team Pro once, till I stopped and they got a better look at it.

    Put some combination of 'virenque velo festina peugeot' into the images section of google.fr and you will get lots of ideas, from team bikes to the mass market replicas.





    Those are just 2 from the first page.

    Ebay.fr has nothing on the next two sources for bikes.

    http://www.leboncoin.fr - pick your location, tap in 'velo' and check daily.

    and for weekends, vide greniers (empty your attic sales) - http://vide-greniers.org/

    buy buy buy!

    It's just unbelievable, the leboncoin site.
    I'm going to look at a Merckx tomorrow - in my size - that is up for €20, complete.

    In case anyone is interested I bought the 57cm, as it's almost my size, for €20.
    As Jim predicted it is low range and fairly heavy, I'm guessing low-range cromoly. No tubing stickers of any kind.

    The bottom bracket is the cup and cone type and needs a good service as it's completely dried out. This will be my 2nd BB overhaul.
    Fortunately the seatpost popped straight out, it a nice-ish Kalin light alloy.
    The DT cable stops will come in useful on another project. It also has the plastic cable guide under the BB, and eyelets for rear mudguards.

    The real bonus is how well it has cleaned up. After a bit of work with a strong car shampoo solution and some microfibre cloths, it's looking absolutely mint, just a tiny bit of scuffing on the rear decals. It's like it's hardly been used. The blue metallic paint has a nice pop to it too after an application of Bilt Hamber Autobalm.

    Pics tomorrow in the sunlight.

    All in all, a VERY nice low-end frame to hang some lowish end componentry on, that is otherwise sitting around not doing much.

    Ooh, lovely peugeots.
    That lo-pro TT bike simply has to be rebadged Pinarello Crono, though.
    Apologies for going against your advice Jim and getting the 57. But it has cleaned up nicely.
    There is a Team Line carbon here built up for €275, shame it's a 54 - too small for me.

    The 57 Virenque has now (finally) been built up as a flat-bar commuter bike, 8-speed, dynamo hub, rear rack, stand, the works.

    The first test ride tonight was successful and photos will be posted tomorrow. Very nice it is too.

    All round a bit of a result. Total expenditure c. €90 (chain, front wheel, lights, cheap threaded headset, DIY headset press), the rest is from the parts bin.
