Founded in 1882 in Sochaux, France, Peugeot is one of the oldest bicycle manufacturers in the world. Throughout their history, Peugeot produced all kinds of bikes ranging from town bikes to pure-bred racing machines.
This one is a tribute to the French rider Richard Viranque, the record 7-times winner of the polka dot jersey for the best climber of the Tour de France.
This Peugeot in team Festina color scheme is made of 5086 aluminium alloy tubes with oversized cross sections. As for the parts, it is equipped with a mix of Campagnolo Veloce, Mirage and Avanti components with 8-speed Ergopower shiftin on the bars.
