For your review is a classic 1977 Peugeot Folding Bicycle in the traditional Peugeot white that is in remarkably well preserved conditon. This Model featured a 5-speed derailleur and 22" (550A) tires that gave it a significant advantage over most small wheel folding bicycles from the period. Additionally, the bike has a longer wheelbase than most of the competition and all these factors gave it a very comfortable ride as well as making it a much better all around bicycle. I have seen this style Peugeot sometimes referred to as a D-40 Model, however whatever the exact Model number this was clearly the top of the line in Peugeot 40 series bicycles.  

Typical of the French made bikes of the period, this Peugeot came fully equipped from the factory with front and rear racks, integrated generator with headlight and tail light, Peugeot bell, tire pump and Mafac tool kit. Quick release levers on the handlebar stem and seat post mean the height of either one can be adjusted in seconds with no tools. The attention to detail of this Peugeot bicycle is really remarkable. These bikes make a really outstanding around town bicycle or shopper and would make a wonderful addition to any Peugeot collection.

Mechanical Condition: This Peugeot was mechanically rebuilt by Harris Cyclery in West Newton Massachusetts who enjoys a sterling reputation worldwide that is well deserved, www.harriscyclery.com . They are also one of the few shops out there who welcome the chance to work on a vintage bicycle. All mechanical components of the bike were overhauled so there are no surprises here. Modern brake pads were installed and the bike is fitted with new Kenda tires. The original Michelin whitewall tires are included. They were in such nice condition that it seemed a shame to use them since they are basically irreplaceable.

Currently the generator is not working, although my best guess is that it is probably something as simple as a bad ground, since the bike has been in storage for quite a while.

Cosmetic Condition: All paint and decals on the bike are original. There are a few cosmetic flaws that I have highlighted in the photographs. For example there is a scratch on the center of the seat tube on the frame that was touched up at some point (picture # 7). Minor corrosion around the frame hinge and the right rear chain stay was touched up, although the chain stay guard covers most of that up.(that guard is a original Peugeot part that came with the bike). Chrome is in outstanding condition although most of the britework is actually Stainless steel no less! Rear fender shows a minor crease or bend by the attaching strut (although it is not easy to see) but now I am getting more than a little nit-picky.

Having said all this, step a few feet back and get ready to by wowed! This bike is in far better than average condition and with a minor professional touch-up of the paint would look like new and be nothing short of show quality.

Accessories Included: The bike came with a set of Peugeot Sandow straps (bungie cords in the US) that were nicely integrated with the front and rear racks with nice chrome ends. These have lost most of their stretch but are included with the bike. The original frame pump and Mafac tool kit are also included as well as the Peugeot bell. As mentioned above the original Michelin whitewall tires are included and are in remarkable condition.

In summary, what we have here is a 1977 era Peugeot 40 series bicycle in remarkable original condition that has been mechanically restored by one of the finest cycle shops out there. This is an exceptionally comfortable bike to ride and would make a perfect addition to anyone out there lucky enough to have a vintage Peugeot PX-10 or UO-8. (particularlly if they are in Peugeot white!)

Please READ the details below Before Bidding!

This auction is for the lower 48 US States ONLY!

Shipping Standards: This Peugeot will be very carefully packed to avoid any problems and shipped by FedEx Ground. Price of shipping reflects a custom fitted, properly sized box to minimize the dissasembly of the bike and lessen the chance of damage. The front wheel will be removed as well as the pedals, seatpost and saddle and handlebars. I have witness far to many damaged bikes sold on eBay because someone attempted to stuff everything into a standard sized bike box to save cost. Local pickups are welcome.

RETURNS: NO RETURNS ARE OFFERED HERE, SO FOR THIS REASON PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING!
