Peugeot Triathlon 80's

Hi guys!!

Recently I bought this beauty for 90 euros. It is a Triathlon model but I am not sure what was the exact year that it was built. Probably it is from late 80's but I would like your help to find the exact year. Could you also tell me if all the components are the original ones? I was told that the only part that has been replaced is the saddle. The bike came with a white San Marco Rolls saddle (currently valued at 98 USD at amazon.com).

Was it a fairly priced bike deal? What do you think?

If you have any suggestions about the parts that I should change please feel free to mention them. I am thinking of changing the handle bar tape, tyres, and brake pads as they all look a bit old and worn out. My experience with bikes is limited as I only have a mtb for daily commuting. So, any thoughts from experienced vintage lovers would be highly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance

It is very hard to read it as this area of the frame has scrathes and it is not in a good condition. I could probably find the exact serial number by thinking and implementing a more creative way. For now if it helps here is what is writen on the paper sticker: 4918074 PGN10T60

I think you got a fair deal and a good bike. As for changing parts upgrading I would start with a full servicing of all the bearings and new consumables brake pads, cables, tires, bar tape and likely new chain & freewheel. Then I would say ride use it for a while before spending a lot of time and money changing things.

I like very much this bike and I would like to spend some money on it as I plan to keep it let's say "forever".. I suppose that spending more than a threshold would not be wise but I see it as something that I like and will keep it, so I dont mind spending an extra 50-100 euros above that threshold.

Firstly, I am thinking to have a frame restoration to deal with the rust, have a new powder coating and do some polishing work on the bike parts. What do you think would be a reasonable price in eur or usd for frame restoration and powder coating in a ral color?

It only needs a good cleaning and wax/polish.

+1 this frame doesn't need repainted and nice repaint with art work decals would run $150+.
