1888 Peugeot – Old bikes are awesome

Posted by Gale Bernhardt on Jul 24, 2012 2:18:34 PM

Awhile back there was a display of old bikes in a local art gallery. These bikes are indeed art.

 

The one that I took the most photos of was the 1888 Peugeot. Some things to take note of in the photos below include hard tires (completely solid rubber), a “spoon” brake, the handlebar grips were made of horn (it didn’t say what type of horn) and a candle lantern for night riding that they proudly note was made at the Luxor Factory in Paris.
