It looks interesting and might be a good gateway bike for Peugeots but it looks a bit big for me. Beside google says it just over three hours so probably closer to 5 for me, I have a tendency to meander sometimes

You'd think that the presence of the Grand Prix in the lineup would have put that hypothesis to rest, but it didn't.
I have several 531 framesets and one Raleigh 575sl triple butted frameset. 575 is ok but it is not in the same league as 531.

My size, I have an…. affliction for things French (esp pre ‘80 bikes..)…. If it were within 4h I’d be driving. If it were the ‘Pearl blue’ color I’d probably be desperately trying to get the seller to ship it..!

Schwinn Tempo 53cm Shimano 105 - $275 (Boston)



​​​​​​Bike mechanic owned
Freshly tuned and ride ready

Good for someone 5’2”-5’10”

1989 Schwinn Tempo
Equipped with full Shimano 105 Groupset.
2x7 Index shifters
Lightweight and durable Steel Frame

Some cosmetic damage as shown. This is a sweet bike and the old 105 has stood the test of time. Would be great for a commuter. It served me well on the trainer last winter as well.

I'm just a little suspicious of the fork, too: those blades look to have a bit of a back-bend, so...inspect this carefully

May be an optical conclusion, pretty cool but yes, proceed with caution.

On a survivor like this, I would be fine rolling, filling the dent and painting with accent band or close color match and call it good.

These don't come up often and this one has a complete Campy drivetrain plus brakes in our favorite oldschool version that cold be retained or sold off for a more modern build.

Pretty ok deal if you want one of these, as I/you/we should.

That's pretty unique. And the frame looks brand new compared to the components and cables.
