Peugeot PNS-55S

Just won what I think is a late-70s Peuegeot PNS-55S on eBay (probably paid way too much but fell in love dontcha know.) It'll join my PGN-10 road bike and UE-18 mixte - guess I need to start looking for a tandem Pug to round out the set. On tenterhooks hoping the bike and various attachments (front/rear racks and fenders) don't get mauled in transit. Will update when it arrives. Very excited to have a folder for getting around town!

Found very little info (well, none, really) about this bike online - anyone have any background on these models?

Very nice bike.

If I'm correct, that bike should be a 5 speed with 22" (489 or larger) wheels, (they do here in Oz), which is quite an uncommon size, however, if you need 22" tires, Schwalbe has a good range so your LBS should be able to get them for you.
