1985 Peugeot PGN 10

I bought this bike in May 2013 from a man named Bob in Patchogue, Long Island. It still had all of its stock components and was hardly ridden for 28 years. The frame was nearly pristine except for some minor cosmetic damage (chipped clear coat/paint and crazing) from long-term garaging. I initially felt obligated to preserve all of the original components but since they were never of any particular significance, they were gradually swapped out with (relatively) modern components.

Lived in Patchogue for years and one of the many bikes I had was a clone of this beauty. Rode great on the flat South Shore but not much of a climber(I'll blame the bike lol). These later Pugs had regular threading and avoided the nightmare parts sourcing of the early models. Very nice bike.

Thanks! I've been pretty hard on myself for my climbing performance - agreed, must be the bike! Yeah, the standard threading made the modern components possible. Not bad for a 31 year old bike!

Thanks! It was the latest Dura-Ace group that didn't look too out of place and Campagnolo was out of my budget.

Nice bike! I have a 1985 PGN10 upgrade with some old ultegra parts I have lying around. How much frame modification did you have to do (drilling out break mounts, frame binding) and did the standard Dura ace bottom bracket fit perfectly in the frame?

Atenacius says:

No modifications are necessary. The bottom bracket is english threaded so it should accept a modern english threaded BB just fine. The only thing is that the rear dropouts will be a little tight. A modern 130mm wheel will fit fine with a little stretch. I wouldn't bother with coldsetting the dropouts.

I look forward to seeing your bike!
