I also have two 1988 Peugeot Biarritz bikes. They were the next model down from the Chorus in the US market. The frame geometry is the same but they were made of Super Vitus 980 tubing with a Shimano 600 gruppo. It's a little lighter than the Chorus and smoother riding too.

Biarritz #1



Biarritz #2 used by a Mazda sponsored team???



I also have an almost new 1989 Chorus 753 frame with a NOS Chorus gruppo to go with it. I need to build it up....

I have a hard time putting together and ridding NOS classic bikes and components. That's why I like stuff with a little patina - don't have to worry about it getting dirty or dinged!

I have a number of "damaged goods" frames that need to put together first, especially with our rainy season coming on us, hopefully til April...

Thanks! I've always liked it. You've got a lot of sweet stuff in your pics as well. Particularly the last pic...

Also, thanks for all the great Campy history lessons and miscellaneous info you've been contributing lately... much appreciated!

Thanks, I love bikes (can you tell).

We sold some Crescents in the mid 70s. They sent us posters and calendars including a version of this one that was cheesecake sans topping (back when such things were considered bike shop art).

No problemo, glad to share... I've done tech writing and training for years. A picture is worth a 1000 words.

Yup, that's what it is. I have a thread devoted to it. It continues to serve me better than expectations. Thanks for the link, because I never noticed that page, and I really like it. I'm not sure what year mine is. I thought 1995, but now I'm leaning to 1997. I had a Surly Cross Check at the same time as this bike, and I liked the Bianchi much more, so I sold the Cross Check.

The color is a metallic green, and to my eye, it doesn't seem to purport to be related to celeste.
