70's (?) Folding Peugeot

'70s Peugeot Folder



I'm going to go look at this little bike this weekend if I can fit it in. I've always liked the look of these older folding bikes and my kids both love them. I know nothing about folders and would love any suggestions on things to look for.

Looks more 1980's than 70's. Nice looking bike.
Would check what wheel size it is. 451 tyres are harder to find but not impossible but its possible it will have 500A in which case tyres are very nearly impossible to get.

It says 22" tires in the ad, that would make them either a 500A or a 550A size. I have never seen that size of tire for sale in the US. Neat little bike though.

Very good to know about the tires. I wasn't able to make it today, nor was the owner. We'll see about tomorrow.

So here's a silly question. What about tubes for these tires?

I was under the impression that Peugeot folders were fitted with 500A.

You can probably use normal 20" inner tubes. Worst case scenario you will be able to replace the rims with 451 rims. This will also improve braking as old steel rims tend to have poor braking performance.
