1987 Peugeot Iseran p6

Beautiful peugeot iseran P6 we refurbished at Bike Boom. If you are not familiar, Bike Boom is a used bike shop in Somerville MA, close to Cambridge and Boston. More about Peugeot and a great source and catalogs here. This bike is slightly different then the one shown in catalogs, mainly the brake levers (non aero instead of safety levers) and shifters (down tube instead of stem mounted). We love the Peugeot for being lighter than any other brand, especially ones that were in the same price bracket and had similar components. Peugeot used its proprietary HLE and 103 carbolite steel aloys, they were not chromoly but are definitly lighter than japanese chromoly frames, even the double and triple butted ones. Peugeot used the Internal brazing technique without the added support and weight of lugs. This method saved the weight of the lugs and also gave a very clean finished look. Once refurbished, Peugeots rarely stay in the shop for more than a few days since the first customer who tries one will usually end up buying. sold to a student in MIT.

  1. I just bought a Peugeot Iseran, same as the one you're showing here. Could anyone tell me specifically what the components were. I need brake levers, front sprocket rings, front and rear derailleurs. Trying to build it up and don't want to get the wrong parts.

  2. I got one but the gear change in the steer not in the frame! I'm wondering how much I can get since probably going to sell it.
