    Peugeot Festina

    SDC11681.jpgSDC11682.jpgSDC11683.jpgSDC11685.jpg
    Hi guys,
    I recently bought a Peugeot Festina second hand as my first racer. I'd really like to know some basic info on the bike and would really appreciate any help. I paid 160 euro and was told that it's original and not a replica. Maybe someone knows some things like what the bike is made of, the approximate year, the worth (original and now) and basicly what kind of a level bike it is or was when it came out.
    Thanks,
    Mark

    Find out what the frame tubing is and it will help confirming on what the bike really is. 160 Euros do not seem to be a high enough price for a real pro Festina/Peugeot bike, plus the provisions for fenders and specially the eyelets on the front dropouts seem to say that it might indeed be a mid level model commemorative "replica" at most by Peugeot as they did similarly for their 100 year commemorative bike.......but who knows, it still could be some sort of wet conditions training bike that they used.
    If it is replica, 160 Euros might still be in the ballpark of what one might expect to pay for this bike, if it has good tubing on its frame.

    Look, an Igeot! Oh, wait, no, it's a Peugeot! Nice looking bike. Sorry, I gave up following Peugeot's models a long time ago, so I don't know anything about them. But it should be great to ride. Set it up to fit well and you'll put many miles and smiles on it!

    Real cyclists use toe clips.

    Please Mark, no offense but ...before you ride it, learn how to spell it. The properly spelled name of the venerable company is hard enough on the eyes as it is. Misspelled it's down right agony. Thanks
