unlikely to be from 1983 i shouldn't have thought. Tig welded lugless bike frames were pretty scarce back then especially in mass produced frames like this. More likely late 80's . Like i said the stamp on the bottom bracket usually incorporates the date especially with French produced goods and 1987 sounds about right to me.

behave and look at the catalogues! It was pretty much 50/50 depending on the quality of the model.


:oops: :oops: :oops: ahem .

I'm still doubtful that such a low grade frametube would have been sold with expensive chromed forks but its possible I guess.

mmm I might need to eat some humble pie yummy :lol:

Looks like Peugeot were certainly using lugless frames as early as 1985 . Surprised to see straight forks back this far though :shock:

I noticed that the '7' wasn't particularly clear, took me ages to work out it actually says 84. I thought it was a bizzare 7, and wondered why it was out of line with the others

I'm 99% certain it's this bike

They aren't bad bikes. Not special, but nicely designed, and well made. You've done alright there.
