What can fit on my new peugeot frame ?

Hi All,

I'm new in this forum. So perhaps my questions will be idiot but I tried to find responses to them by browsing/ searching with no success. Well I restored a Benetto from scratch this winter (winter is long
here in Canada...) with no problem (I ride it now every days) then I bough a Peugeot for continuing to
play but everything goes wrong with it... the frame get a Peugeot headbadge, the fork says super vitus
the drop out are simplex and the head set is stronlight the rear spacing is 126 mm and the BB is (68) BSC (not french) thread. I have three problem with the frame.

1 - The shifter bosses brazed on the frame are "strange" they are perfectly cylindrical (no flat at the end) and as the hole in the left one is ok for campy and shimano shifter the hole in the right one is widder then nothing fir in it. So any idea ?.... Simplex ? Huret ?

2 - For the BB the thread on the adjustable cup side is to short then the cup end on the threads end before the balls, I have tried with a shimano 600 the spindel is 68x116.

3 - There is a little threaded hole in the seat tube at the place of the front derailleur what type of derailleur use this type of fixation ???

So any clue will be appreciated I just want to figure out what type of group was mounted on this frame.

Thanks so much.

PS : The funniest thing is that I'm french... But you perhaps already gessed it... My english is terible..

For some reason Simplex keeps popping into my head when I think back 20 years.

The BB spindle is too wide.

The shifters? I dont recall Peugeot using mixed matched bosses. The cataloge I have in front of me has two models with super Vitus tubing, both have band type front derailleus, one is Shimano the other is Campy. That little boss can filled down.

Thanks so much for the responses. It helps, I think that I finally what type of
animal it is......

From: http://www.classicrendezvous.com/Fra...10_history.htm

1988 -- Chorus (Reynolds 753 tubing, Campagnolo Chorus components);
Sante (Reynolds 531, Shimano Sante components);
Biarritz (Super Vitus 980, Shimano 600 components) and
Deauville (Super Vitus 980, Modolo/Stronglight/Maillard/Huret and Wolber components)

So it look like it is a Deauville because the tubing is super vitus 980 and the head set Stronglight....
Not really sure that I will try to find the original components....

Thanks so much.

Philippe.
