It's steel, the seller doesn't know what he has. All Chrome bikes are cool, problem with old chrome is it's rare to find one not pitted all up.

Peugeot UX-10

Peugeot Record Du Monde 52cm - $200 (Fort Collins)

This is a wonderful vintage road bike that unfortunately had the bars and seat swapped out. 52 cm center to center with a 54cm top tube. Classy Renolds 531 frame and fork built with Nervex lugs! Original crank (Stronglite), derailleurs and brakes.
Link

Looks like a mid-70s Peugeot UX-10 (PX-10 with 27" wheels). I'm really trying hard to not buy bikes nowhere near my size, so I'm outing this one. Riims should be alloy, but they may be steel from a cursory glance. A bargain regardless.

I won this today. I'll be picking it up, so it's a low risk purchase. He claims it's lightweight, but I'm concerned it's a heavier straight gauge. I'll just have to see what it is.

Nice! Post some photos when you get it, and Chas, the source supreme for everything to do with Gitane, will probably know what it is.

I would guess that it's a post-1974 model, judging from the "spiderweb" dropouts. I never heard of a chromed Gitane, though. It seems like an interesting find for what you paid for it.

Followed a link for a Schwinn, above, to Cleveland CL, decided to see what else was listed there, and lo and behold, there was this Trek 420 Triple. For $200. Like.

I am wondering if someone from here picked this one up?
It is still listed, but the listing has not been renewed since Nov 10, and no reply from the lister since my email to them over 24 hours ago.
Could be one of those ignorant people who sells but does not delete the listing.
