Chrome Peugeot Orient Express

Does anyone know what year Peugeot made a Orient Express in a chrome finish with the only lug being at the top of the seat post; everything else is tig welded. The tubes are CR MO Tange 5 Big tubing. I took the bike on trade and wasnít to excited to be picking up another bike; especially one I hadnít really considered building. But after getting the frame cleaned up and putting a set of wheels on it, I was quite impressed with what I got. First, I didnít know that I was going to be able to fit 700c wheels. Second, Iím in love with the long wheel base and front fork. Third, there so many eyelets for rack mounts itís crazy. There are two by each wheel mount and one half way up the front fork. Itís surprising that it only has one water bottle cage mount.

The frame looks like the frame in the 89 catalogue and its offered in black chrome, but all the components down to the headset are Shimano Exage Trail drivetrain, so I’m guessing it’s a 90?

No idea, but that would make a hot touring bike.

Black chrome bikes are the cat's pyjamas.

Why would you want to use 700c wheels on a bike designed with brake studs for 26" wheels?
