The elusive peugeot
Apparently, according to ‘Jimmy the bike man’, (see Ici Bike post) the French bikes are beautifully made and they last and last. I have always fancied older Peugeots, and that goes for Peugeot folders as well.
I have spotted a chap riding one past my place twice, but haven’t managed to stop him for a snap, (it takes a bit of bottle to flag someone down and ask if you can photograph their bike.) The second time I saw him I did manage to rush out on the balcony like some demented woman and call out “Peugeot folding bike – lovely!” as he sailed past. I think he looked back and smiled, but that might have been wishful thinking. Maybe I have warmed him up for next time.
In the mean time, here are two Peugeot folders from the archive. Not the best photos, but what can you do?
