Yes, and it looks as if the decal might have been placed there to conceal front-impact damage to the tubing. That said, the head tube angle doesn't look as steep as you'd expect it to be if the bike...

Even if undamaged, that is not a hiking - I assume meaning cycle-touring - bike at all. It has no fittings for racks or mudguards or any of the other bits that tourists like. More than likely the...

I just zoomed in to look at the shifters bertinjim mentioned and noticed that the label saying hand made frame and made in Italy appears to be slapped over the lug. Probably not too swift of a bike.

ali.ma-

Judging from the shape of the spot welded shifter braze-ons, I would say a mid-level 1980s Peugeot, possibly a Course or a Champion. The black repaint makes it impossible to see details of...

And I'm not necessarily saying if it is damaged it is a show stopper. Someone may verify if it is a desirable bike or not. If it is something special, just take into consideration that the fork may...

I don't know anything about it other than the dangle of the angle of the fork doesn't look right. Could just be the photo, but it may be damage.

Something's outa whack. Whether it's the bike or the photo, I can't say. But I can say with confidence that the head angle on the OP's photo does not match the photos that Verktyg posted. Maybe...

Fork looks okay (not bent) to me. Appears to still have tubular rims. Per info posted above by Verktyg, dropouts are Huret so expect Huret specific derailleur hanger. I expect it has not been ridden...

The upper photo of the blue modified mixte style bike appears to be a mid 1970's European model with 650b tires. The silver bike is a later model probably from the early 1980's.

There are several...
