. . . and then two come along at once

Last Saturday I was in my shop working on a 1998 Peugeot Festina Edition when a cyclist arrived at the door. Riding a 1996 version of the same thing.

Naturally we had to have photos . . .

Sold!

The customer specced the yellow bar tape, it really made the bike pop.

The alloy (curved downtube) or the steel (straight)?

Sorry, It's been a while.

The curved alloy frame was a feature of the 98 model Festina replica. I believe they didn't sell too well, the Festina team being slung out of that year's Tour de France for doping really didn't help! A great deal of the unsold models were eventually broken up and sold by St John Street Cycles
