86 Peugeot Triathalon self isolation project 😀 Super Vitus 980


Original rusty frame

Replacement frame to be repainted

Mavic MA40 Dura-Ace wheelset
Stumbled upon this bike and could not pass it up. I love a good challenge. Leaning towards dark sapphire blue metallic. All aluminum will be polished and fork will be re-chromed. Black vintage Selle San Marcos Rolls seat. Gumwall tires. Brown runner hoods on brakes and cotton bar tape with shellac finish. Oh!! Using a vintage head badge.
let the fun begin

Nice, basically, a PSV with the "Triathlon" badging added and, I believe, extra bottle bosses at the bottom of the down tube and the pump peg at the head tube. Curious to know what threading the BB has, but I believe it to be British already.
It should build up to a nice light bike, being is still sportedthe Super Vitus 980 tubing, before Peugeot moved over to the heavier Reynolds 501 tubing, the next year.

You have pegged the factory build exactly!! Surprised by how little the frameset weighs. So happy to be back after a couple of decades away from the sport. Moved fro. Riding Cannondale and Raleigh.

Being stuck in self imposed isolation, I too needed a project. My project was simple - find an appropriate bike, clean it up, grease it up, and tune it up. Then ride it.

Project complete now and totally enjoying the riding part (even on the Manitoba prairies and the prairie winds) - gotta raise the saddle a bit more and get a pair of SPD pedals...

Looks like the frame uses a "quill"-type seat post. Hope you have one or can find one!

Making self isolation into a positive. Manitoba prairies must be a bit frigid. Stay safe! Stay healthy!! She's a beautiful bicycle.
