stumpjumper1990, I'm surprised to see a Peugeot amongst your other beauties !
I also own one, Crazy Horse model, of course not because I get excited with it but because they were the first available MTBs here in France from 1984 on.
It's in a sorry state but it'll get restaured someday ... after tenths of other vintage projects :roll:

Cheers
Karl


Hi Karl,

I found it for €20 and thought I could use some parts. It turned out to be completely original ( even the tires in good condition) so I decided to keep it for now... Not surr what to do with it....

Cheers,
Bart

I like Kona's, but I'm no massive fan, just neutral I suppose. However, your bike is one of the nicest, of any brand, that I've ever seen on RetroBike. I've never seen a bike look so "right" as this one. Fantastic!

They look so simple and uncluttered, like they'd ride forever.

I've yet to break an 80's bike that has been well built and cared for; I believe mine will ride forever 8)

what a great thread this is! My interests in retro bikes is moving from mid nineties to late eighties early nineties. Now I need to get myself an eighties bike!

Bart, what size is that '88 comp? Is it a 19.5 inch? If so, I''d like to know the top tube length on that frame...

Pim, size from seattube ctc is 50 cm or 20 inch, toptube ctc is 57,5 cm or 23 inch. I think it's a size 20,5 inch if they measure it ctt!? Seems to small for a 19,5.
