Help with Peugeot Lightning

Just picked up this Peugeot Lightning and I think it’s an 87/88. From what I’ve been told and have found these only came in red but this one is chrome. The story I got was that the factory made 30 in chrome for some racers in California but that doesn’t seem right as the bike has coaster brake, kick stand and reflector. Any additional info would be much appreciated…just trying to get accurate info before I sell it.

Re: Help with Peugeot Lightning

( The story I got was that the factory made 30 in chrome for some racers in California)

is a straight up load of horse shit.no factory rider raced that. lets just get that straight. lmao!!

cali had a wack of high end bike builders locally. hell the man himself (VDC) was in cali at that time.

no factory in cali ordered 30 of those in chrome for the factory team, from out of the country no less.

glws,

Re: Help with Peugeot Lightning

ya, that i dont know. it coulda been a region thing.

im no guru on this brand either. but it wasnt high on the food chain.

but i did grow up back then and i know for sure, no team riders messed with anything that had chain guard tabs, and low end components. and they deffinatly wouldnt have come with a boat load of reflectors for the race track. lol even those that raced for huffy and the like usually had re decaled better ff of other brands.... just decaled as a huffy and so forth.

honestly by the late 80s, chrome was on the way out, (due to new epa reg and exspense.) thats why the mid school is the dark era. lots of black parts and bikes....if they even had paint.lotta stuff was raw as well.. so chances are they were left overs of another model and was decaled as it is now.

hope that helps,
rc
