fleslider's 1998 Peugeot Festina Replica rebuild

You may have seen this bike from some other posts. I know its "newer" being a 1998 Model,but let's face it i would get laughed out of the road forum.

So here we go, this sad looking Pug rolled into the coop a couple months ago..ok maybe it was summer when it came in. but either way. this bike came in with a torn up headset and missing seatpost seat,and wearing some beat up Matrix freewheel rims. it had looked like to been dragged behind a semi for 1000 miles,covered in dirt and road grime.

but what caught my eye was that fork.. then it was the lower/low end campagnolo on it. when it hit me that this was a newer Peugeot. now in the UK you might say...so what i cant throw a rock without hitting a Peugeot (maybe not). But in the US where Peugeot pulled out of the market in the early 1990's. this must have been brought over here to the US from UK. Im not sure about everyone else but i like that thought!

Anyways i have since bought it from the coop and have torn it down to the bare frame and will work on cleaning up and rebuilding it!

So heres what i started with

The top of the barcode label can be decoded. I am not an expert at the decoding.

ZVI6000 the model: Virenque 6000.
U = ?
DE = country code. Deutschland/Germany
60 = frame size. 60cm
1C9 = ?

Thanks Hummer!

Sounds right it is a 60cm frame and it had a sticker from some haus on the Rhine, so that would help the Germany tie.

Thanks, I have hit a little snag as the campy headset i was going to use is a ISO Crown Race and it looks like this one is JIS (?). i will have to get the calipers out to measure, but thats what it looks like.

A quick update, have not been able to work on it much since im in the middle of moving, but i was able to get the crown race seat refaced and cut down to ISO from JIS. this way the headset is nice and clean and alot more choices in headsets!

Before refacing


After refacing and resizing headset crown race seat.

Did you check the frame cavities for EPO...? Kidding, seriously your Peugeot cleaned up very nice, looks like a fun fast ride. Richard Virenque is going to think you stole his bike.

@ryansu
LOL.. i looked for some EPO but nothing there, rumor has it, that it magically appears at all border crossings and the whole bike becomes a needle when you get near the border of Belgium and France.

Anyways thanks im really liking the ride.
