Peugeot Comete aluminium

This exact model in fact: http://cyclespeugeot.com/images/1987_Comete.jpg

Fairly tidy considering its age - no dents/ dings or cracks. Just lots of grime....

Pics soon

Interesting construction technique, no glue eh? Must be a very tight friction taper fit. I wonder if it would come loose in very cold weather!

Nice find by the way. I can't say I've ever seen one. Any pics?

What size did you get?

22" frame - seatpost offered no resistance (is that a French thing?).

Looks quite intriguing. Build it with French bits for the full gallic effect!

The head tube looks big for a 22", is that c-t?

its my 'top 'o the seat tube to middle of BB' measurement.



:cry: found a crack in one of the replaceable rear stay's mounts, looks like its been there for years.

Could be fixed, honestly not fussed if you imagine the durability of an old SR crankset, thats about the same stuff as the lugs are made of. Tough as old boots.

Shame, but it will do as a hanger for my bling roadie stuff untill something more interesting comes along.
