    Peugeot Mixte, PH 18

    Recently pick up an '85 Peugeot PH 18 Mixte, not sure why other than I think it is a cool looking bike. Handlebars are not original, at least I hope not, Handle bar has “Streamline” on it, has a pretty nice looking Bontrager saddle and a Pletscher kickstand. Other than that I believe components are all original. Don’t know about the headlight and taillight, but the frame appears to have been made with the generator mount originally, as it is welded on the seat stay and painted the same.
    Components are lower or mid-level, but one odd thing is the chrome fork, just a special touch on some of the PH 18’s, I guess. Another odd thing, to me, is it's size for a mixte. It is a large frame, too big for me, I'm closer to 50cm. I believe it's 57 or 59, sticker on left side chainstay ends in 57, bottom bracket ends in 59. But that may not be the size in either case, but from what I have gleaned from different forum accounts of Peugeot bikes, it should be. Any information or thoughts on this bike would be appreciated.







    Sachs Huret- shifters and derailers,
    Weinmann- brakes 610 fnt, 750 rear, and levers,
    Maillard- hubs and 5 speed freewheel,
    Rigida SUPERCHROMIX rims,
    Crankset, a double, not sure. Has an “S” on the bolt cap like the Stronglight on my Moto but the chainrings look cheaper.
    About that freewheel, it is sometime free in both directions. It will crank some then go free for a bit and then catch. Possibly old grease gunked up inside?? Have not cleaned and inspected things yet, the pictures are as it was when brought home. Don’t have much money in it, just another project.

    Yes, I thought it was a nice looking bike also. Since the photos were taken I have cleaned it up and put a wax job on it, looks even slicker now. Need to check out the freewheel still, waiting on a tool to remove it, it's different than my other "Made in France" bike, a Motobecane. This bike has been housed inside for sure, took the seat post out and it looks like it's brand new. There are a couple of small dings in the fenders and a few scratches, but nothing major as for cosmetics.

    It's not a lugged frame but still pretty cool looking! Will be replacing those handlebars though, I think that is the only thing that didn't come on it originally. It's a work in progress, but I don't expect to have to do very much to it to make it road ready. Thanks for looking and comment Bianchigirll, will post a new photo or two when done.

    I picked up a Peugeot Mixte just the other day, and the seat tube looked to be considerably longer than most. If you wish I can get some pictures of the bicycle and send them to you. I might add that we (Bicycles for Humanity) sell bicycles, like the old Peugeot for $100.00 or less, plus shipping costs.

    I don't understand why you would replace the handlebars. Whie those may not be the original they certainly look OK and offer a very upright riding position which IMHO is great for a city bike.

    I agree, but it's the diameter of the bar that is the problem, if I can get it to tighten up enough that it doesn't slip, will leave it like it is, although I have a bar similar to the top photo in the link Miamijim furnished. Trying to keep costs to a minimum of course.

    Randyjawa and Miamijim, thanks for the info and the link, measured the seat tube, its a 57cm which matches the last two digits on the sticker on chain stay.
