Peugeot is one of the great veterans when it comes to vintage bikes. Jean Pequignot Peugeot was a Frenchman who built watermills and steelworks. In 1882 he made the first bicycle, a handmade Velte petter. Peugeot steelwork became very useful. During World War I, they produced 63,000 bicycles per year and 10,000 aircraft engines!
Peugeot was eager to draw attention to its road bikes and as a result, they started sponsoring riders. In 1896, Paul Bourillon became world champion in Copenhagen on a Peugeot bicycle. In 1905, Peugeot got its first Tour de France winner: Louis Trousselier.
In the following years, the Peugeot Tour de France won a total of ten times. Peugeot and their rival Mercier wanted to stay in the Tour, but in the mid 80's it became very expensive. The hunt for the yellow t-shirt was over for Pascal Simon and the Peugeot team.
The classic Peugeot bike was not always built by Peugeot. The frames often came from small, independent stores. While most other teams used the popular and well-known Campagnolo group from Italy, Peugeot chose classic French parts. The standard was Stronglight crankset, Simplex gear system and Mafac brakes.
Peugeot was ridden by Tom Simpson, Eddy Merkx and Bernard Thevent, among others. The PX-10 was in production from 1953 to 1990, but when the PX-10 was introduced in 1975, it became Peugeot's most popular road bike.
