    I am not the expert on this, but I am pretty sure the first model year was 1982. I am not sure how long they ran with it. Here is my 83 PSV 10. It looks similar to the 82

    peugeot's models are too complicate, always confused.

    Chombi and Scozim will most likely chime in here and give you some accurate info on these bikes. Mine has a couple of upgrades, and is my lightest bike(other than a Carbon Trek)

    About '82 to '87. PSN/PSV10. I think they may have done one other model before '85, but that is it.

    The main triangle and fork of some of the triathlon models were 980 as well. The stays seem to be some mystery steel though.

    Seems to me they started around 1982 and finished with the Triathlon and PSN10 with that tubing in 1987 or 1988. Super Vitus tubing is my favorite frame material to ride. My 983 equipped Gitane is respectably light, nimble and a great climber. If I had a 980 Peugeot in my size it would see a lot of miles every year.

    The best ones eye-candy-wise were the light silver-blue one's from the very early 80s. Know a family who's patriarch died owning one - never ridden - with mostly Stronglight parts. Was very light at the time for a steel bike.

    I think the PSV first came to be with the 82 model, 84 was PSV's last year. The SV980 frame was carried on by the PSN (With Campagnolo Victory Gruppo) and Triathlon models till 87 and that was it for SV980 on Peugeot bikes,.....at least for the US market.

    The only difference to this list (at least in my shop) is the 84' PSV10 hanging on my wall which has an english threaded bb. I'm not sure about the headset. My brother switched out the bottom bracket on the '84 PSV I unfortunately gave him and it also had an english threaded bb.

    Thats certainly a possibility. Catalogs prior to '85 dont differentiate threading so it's members like yourself who provide additional information to fill the gaps!! Somrtimes its possible to fit British BB's into Swiss frames.

    My 1986 example... tag says PSN10T60, I believe the only year for tulip red. Very comfortable for longer, easier rides. The ghost shifting can be a bit un-nerving when you get on it. I suppose some fine-tuning of the Sachs-Huret RD is in order.

    PSN10T60 =

    P = Peugeot
    S= Super Vitus tubing
    N= Clinchers
    10 = racing series
    T = either a color code for tulip red or suffix designation for Triathlon
    60 = frame szie in CM

    The serial number under the BB will tell year and month of frame production.

    Thanks Jim.

    OK, for the record and to further my education, at least on this bike... BB number appears to be:
    B 601 72320
    So possibly made in January, 1986


    Here is the usually lost paper tag:


    And the SV980 label located just above the DT shifters:

    I wonder what the suffix "E" was for?

    I've had PX10's with that letter, and possibly my former PKN10(E?).

    I've got a French custom Tipo Limongi (Guisseppe Limongi) that's made of the 980 tubing, it rides and handles very well but of course flexes noticeably more than a couple of 1990's OS steel frames I own.

    And the SV980 label located just above the DT shifters:
    Yes, January of 1986 for the frame, 72320 would be the sequential number the frame. 478936 would be the sequential number or internal code for the model. Does your right pedal 'click' on the down stroke? I only ask becasue the fixed cup appears loose...but it could be an illusion.

    As far as I've been able to determine 'E' means 'different than' I think it simply means different than the previous version as in a slight specification change.

    No click, fixed cup is tight... goofy camera angle trying to get stamped characters to show. Thanks for the info Jim.

    And it not as clean as the pics seem to show RNDM. It was well used when I got it, and I keep on using it ;-)
