Peugeot 753 ?

Hello, any Peugeot specialist here? I found a Peugeot (late 80´s?) with apparently reynolds 753 tubing to restore on ebay and haven´t got the bike yet but am very curious what I just bought...anybody has an idea? here is a picture....

They are the nicest peugeot bikes ever made. Mine had a full chorus groupo. It was great but way to small so I parted it out and sold it. Its a really stiff bike that goes when you stomp it.

I don't think so.

SebSeb where are you located? Whats the serial number? Whats the paper sticker say?

That decal scheme debuted in '89 and continued to '91 or '92.

As SoreFeet said...that is one very, very serious top notch race machine.

Its pictured in my 1990 U.K. catalog. Full Reynolds 753, forged dropouts and fork ends, full Campy Chorus, Wolber tubular rims and tires, 3T bars and Stem, Look carbon pedals, San Marco Rolls saddle.

well, I am located in paris (france) and the bike will come here by post from around Brest - I hope it is not dented, torn or twisted...you never know with ebay, but I will take the risk amd cross my fingers...would like to built it up as it was once (the rims are now Mavic Open pro as the desciption read - the brakes seems to be modolo or mavic I guess)...I will post pictures when it arrives...thank you already for the valuable information...I couldn´t find any of this so far....the chain looks VERY rusty in the picture......we´ll see.... -seb.

PS: why did Peugeot not use the record-group if this was their best bike?

well, a big box arrived today, an although it was packed badly the frame had no dents from all the parts flying around....no real rust either although far from "very good condition" as announced and a 57 instead a 56 frame...rather large for me....hmmm....but have a look yourself of the first impressions...

Nothing beats using the chainrings to reinforce the box.

Looks like a nice bike. What is the model name, "CARPEP"?

I hate it when the gross marketing crap is incorporated into the decals ("Hand Brazed", frame geometry,...). The tubing type is done to preserve the information, which cannot otherwise be proven without a metallurgical analysis.

there are Stickers (which can be easily removed) from a CARRER Team apparently which are aplied to the top-tube and the seat-stays...yes, the hand-brazed thing is a gimmick as the CAD Frame-sticker...but why should the rules of marketing exclude the bicycle industrie.....

More info?

I just picked up an almost idential bike (http://www.leboncoin.fr/velos/942938556.htm). just trying to find out any more info especially age. The frame has Y00 2 27 stamped on the bottom but has Shimano groupset, is it really a late 80's early 90's frame?

@sebseb you should try riding it before assuming it is too big. I bet if you give her a few rides you won't notice the 1 cm difference...unless you really aren't digging the bike itself.
Anyway, more info on peugeots that were sold to the French market can be found here Brochures - France

The link is not responding but your serial serial number could represent 1980 or 1990. If it has the colour splashes on the frame like the previously posted bicycles, then should be 1990.

Your link isn't working for me either, but I'd love to see it. Sounds like a great bike. I do wonder why they'd go with Chorus rather than Record (or would that have been NR at that time).

What do you mean the bottom headset cup is loose and there is no damage? It shouldn't move at all period. If it is indeed loose and spinning/moving.. that is cause for concern in my opinion. Not good. Means the head tube race got flared. Can you adjust all the play out?

EDIT: I didn't realize how old this was. I'm sure the OP has realized this by now. Doh!
