Hi. I just got back from Poland, my wife grew up there and hadn't been back in 30 years, any way I was struck with the amount of bikes running around in Lodz, Gdansk and Krakow. It made me realize I don't have a proper "city bike". So I'm off on a quest. Being a Bianchi guy my first choice would be a geared Selvino, but I'll go with any "right" bike. I came across the following and wondering if anyone may be familiar with Peugeot to help me date and identify. This baby is virtually ready to go. I'd just add mustache bars and bar end brake levers.

I can't help with the bicycle model but the rear deraIlleur is a Simplex Grand Tourisme, which was introduced in 1952 and discontinued by 1960. That at least narrows down the search range to 1952-1959, assuming it is OEM.

The Versailles decals look to have been added post-production. Perhaps by the bicycle shop that sold it?

Looks like it's a 1959 PHX-50. That's a beautiful bike. It originally came with drop bars, so I'd keep them with it.

Looking further, now that I noticed the painted fork, it's most likely a PLC-50, not a PHX-50.

The upper Versailles sticker is likely the shop sticker. The larger one lower is probably a souvenir with the city's seal on it. I added a few to my rear fender during a trip after a summer placement at BMW; Munich, Florence and Nice, among others.


Sadly, it appears that 12 Rue Carnot in Versailles is now a tattoo shop. Lovely bike, by the way.
