Peugeot Triathlon...Year ?

Hi all...new to forum.

I have a Peugeot Triathlon, and I was wondering if someone can help me identify its year of manufacture...
I have the serial number (Y003 20530), I search the cyclespeugeot.com but didn't work out.

Thanks

Welcome to the Bicycle Forums, cavel...

If you take the time to have a look through How Old Is My Bike?, and apply the information contained there-in, you will come pretty darn close to nailing the vintage of your bicycle.

Hope this is a help.

I want to say that little squiggly graphic was only used on the 1989-ish Peugeot models. For example:


1989 Peugeot Touraine

I got a lot of hits when I googled "Peugeot Triathlon" - don't forget the "l" or it won't bring up any results.

Both. You can also check the component date codes.

Kool bike, and looks like it's in great condition. Next time shoot a drive side photo of the bike so we can see the components. Last of the made in France bikes so hold on to it if you like it. I have my eye on a Vitus with Sachs. Good biking.

Certainly, post 86 with those graphics and what looks to be a Reynolds 501 sticker on the seat tube, so it could be entirely "de-Frenchified", (except for the made in France stickers, of course).....At least you still have a nicely sloping crown on it and not any gooney looking "Unicrowns" that appeared on some of their later bikes.
It's not a Canadien build though.......is that good??

Peugeot* never stopped making bikes in France. Around 1991 Peugeot of France sold of the rights of their bike division to Cycleurope who continued to manufacture Peugeots in France through the mid 2007's.

The last of the lugged steel bikes was manufactured around 1996. I suppose if one wanted to be overly particular 1990/1 would be last of Peugeot of France bikes.
