loud!

Nothing screamed 80s graphic design louder than these 'mangalloy' Peugeot's.Think big hair,shoulder pads,Flock of Seagulls ,Peugeot Mont Blanc.Still,I'm giving this beautifully preserved example 4 1/2 stars for the original saddle alone.

Yeah,I do too,PT. But still, I liked the Frenchness of the 60's and 70's graphics even more. These were pretty generic.

80s bikes are all the rage here in the U.S. and are fetching good prices. I especially like the older Peugeots. There's somethgn about the graphics that I find timeless.

I know what you mean about the decals,Ms Bikes. I currently have a 70's Peugeot which is in desperate need of a new coat of paint and I'm loathe to blast them off.
