I had to pick up the Stumpjumper Epic yesterday which the seller brought to Rio (Thanks Pim)! While I was in the neighborhood I picked up a old Peugeot MTB which I bought for €20. I was interested to see if I could use some parts. When I got home the bike seemed totally original with even the original tires. I found some old catalgues from 1986, but this one might be a bit earlier.

Can anyone help me date this old Peugeot? Did not clean it yet! :oops:

Sachs Huret mechs and Maillart hubs!

Peugeot used this letter-type,the "Direct Brazing System" and the CAD-predicatum in the first half of the nineties: from '92 to circa '94-'95.
As I know "computer aided design" method was not in widespread use in the eighties.But the brakes and the shifters are seem to be from an earlier
period...

Looks cool Bart!
I don't know the age, but I noticed the lower end bikes often used older parts then available in that era, so they look older then they might be.

Thanks all!

Here's a link to some old Peugeot catalogues: http://www.peugeotshow.com/

Take a look at the 1986 US catalogue: http://www.peugeotshow.com/1986us/1986us_10.jpg

And this Dutch 1987 catalogue:
http://www.peugeotshow.com/1987nl/1987_19.jpg

Seems to be from that era....?!?

The decals "peugeot" on your bike seems of a later period.

If you take a look at the 1988 and 1989 catalogues it's the same logo decal.
