Cicleste was my first project. I started with a 1979 Peugeot Course PFN-10. Not a top of the range, but an excellent racing bike with Vitus 172 steel pipes. The first thing was to completely remove the paint from the frame, then finish it by hand, leaving the satin tubes, but with mirror steering junctions. I then painted the graphics and covered everything with clearcoat. The fork was chromed and I left it like that, it was enough for me to clean it. Once the frame was finished, I moved on to the components: I left the seat post, the handlebars, the transmission, the brakes and the wheels (with new spokes and rims) of the originals. I changed the headset to an FSA with sealed bearings, as well as the bottom bracket. Then I replaced the stem with a very rare 3TTT marked "MARTINI" and I paid homage to the French origin with the IDEALE saddle. The result is a bike of extraordinary charm.

The original.
