    Peugeot Perthus question

    All references I can find to this bike indicate it was made with Reynolds 753, but has anyone ever hear about them making this model out of 531?

    Thanks!

    I always thought they were all 753s as they came out much later that when 531 was the tubing to use on manufacturer's top of the line bkes.

    Gotcha - might be looking at a fake then. I'll tread carefully.
