Reading that description, it makes me wonder if there were any 531 Mixtes made by Peugeot.. I don't think so! I sold them in shops intermittently from 1973 until the early 1990s (or whenever their distribution pooped out in the USA) and I recall no "fancy" mixte models... This certainly does not mean that they never existed, esp. maybe in France or Europe as perhaps a higher priced mixte framed bike might be more likely to find buyers there?
