Another 'What Peugeot is this?' question

Hi from Australia

I'm new to this vintage bike game and want to try and get the model correct for this Peugeot project bike. Can I call it a PY10? I suspect it's Japanese not French so thinking a fixed gear conversion is not too sacrilegious.

Have done heaps of research to avoid asking dumb questions but being Japanese it's a bit of an oddity. It's also a complete mixed bag of components which makes it almost impossible to date, and the serial number doesn't conform to the patterns on the retro Peugeot sites.

Prestige Peugeot 'Classique'
Frame: Tange #2 tubing, 61cm c/t
Frame spacing: 120mm
Crank: Shimano 400EX
RD: Shimano 300EX
FD: Shimano 300EX
Shifters: RSX
Post: SR Sakae 26.6mm (C87SR = March 1987?)
Bars: Kusuki Win


Thanks in advance.

Kerry

Gosh, that is an odd looking/sounding Peugeot, if it's even a Peugeot.
plastic chrome outlined black lion head tube "badge" and the single waterbottle bosses places it in the pre-mid 80's era (83-84?), but the color on the seat tube lion and the down tube graphics seems to hint of a later model. The seat tube checkers were definitely a standard thing on most Peugeots pre-85 though.
It'a a bit unusual to see a Tange tube decal on a Peugeot though, It's usually Reynolds or Vitus at that time, but who knows, all this odd stuff going on could also mean that it could be one of those Euro/Canadian market only bikes that started to pop up at that time.....Or this could just be a cyclist having fun with a bunch of assorted descals he had lying around to pretty up his bike......
I'm sure Peugeot experts like Miamijim might chime in and tell us all what 's going on here.

It looks like it was produced after Peugeot stopped exporting road bikes to the USA, so we Americans aren't likely to help much.

If the saddle height is adjusted to fit you, the bike is much too big for you.

Looks like a Procycle Peugeot from around 1990 to me.
Must have been brought into Australia from Canada at some point.

1990 with only one set of waterbottle bosses and the black plastic lion headbadge?? does not seem to compute correctly cause that's what I had on my 82-83 PH10S. My 84 PSV also has a single set of waterbottle bosses. Fork crown on this bike also looks pre-85.......but it IS a French bike afterall....

Even to the Austrailian market. I think someone got creative with decals and headbadge.

Yep, the saddle sure looks goofy (as does the rest of it) which just adds to the fun of tearing it down and starting again after picking it up from a friend of a friend on the weekend. I ride 58cm c/c on modern bikes with plenty of seatpost showing, but prefer a larger frame if going for a more traditional setup.

Cheers

Last post and pics from me until she's built up and ready to roll out the garage. Here she is stripped down, de-gunked, polished and fish-oiled (stinky poo).

Thanks for the input guys

Uh, I suspect those Tange decals were stuck on by a previous owner.

I know this is an ancient thread, but just to shed some light on this mysterious Peugeot. In South Africa in the mid 80's to early 90's the South African Peugeot factory built bikes using Tange tubing. Model names included Classique, Mirage, Le Mans and Rapport. The bike pictured is typical of the South African bikes, and with thousands of South African immigrants to Australia in the last 20 years it likely entered the country via that route.

Hello, just done a google search for peugeot prestige, classique, racing bike which has taken me to this forum. I have the exact same bike which i was hoping to try and find how much it was worth to put on ebay. I bought mine in south africa in 1986 paid a fortune back in the day. I only ended up riding it about 4 times. I will try and upload some pictures if that helps you

1. Where are you located?

2. Full sized hosted pictures, drive side preferred. You will need them for ebay anyway.

Should bring some decent $$. But it depends greatly on your location, your experience and rating as a seller, your proven ability to ship at a reasonable price, and your marketing skills. Variance on ebay can be 2 to 3X, maybe more. Getting full value is actually a fair amount of work.

That is understating the situation, in my opinion. Few people understand how much time goes into finding, cleaning, preparing copy, preparing pictures, listing items, and answering emails. Then, if something does sell, you get to answer more emails, find packing material, pack the item, go to the post office, or shipper, and then keep an eye on the item, as it travels from my place to anywhere else on the planet.

That, in my mind, is indeed a fair amount of work.

Hansom/Peugeot (1967 to 1980s): South Africa
Bike-maker Gotty Hansen teamed up with French businessman Ettiene Somorjal to establish Hansom cycles. This pair subsequently obtained the licence to produce bicycles under the Peugeot brand. Hansen’s bikes were also produced under the Zini brand.
