Peugeot Tricyles!!!

We sold alot of them back in the day. Tough as nails. The rear axle was set up in such a way that the back end never became wobbly. In reality these were made by Italtrike or Italbike, I cant remember but they were made in Italy. There's a good chance I assembled this very one:

But the fork ends are plated, does that mean this is a UO-series trike instead of a A0 series?

UO-3. Replace the riser handlebars with some drop bars and you'll have a nice fixie.

Not so fast. There is no pump peg on the downtube, so maybe it is a PX-10!! Come to think of it, there is no down tube.


Maybe its a rare, early, sloping top tube design! Measure the seat post, and we can determine the type of tubing! Looks like that super rare, unobtainium tubing.

LOL.

They look like 1-piece cranks. Maybe Astabulas?
