Don't know about fancy Peugeot mixte's but have seen Bob Jackson, Jack Taylor, and Bertin mixtes. The Bertins and Jacksons were sold through Hans Ohrt Lightweight Bikes in west LA in the early 1970's. There have been a few sporadic runs of Italian high-end step-through frames over the years. Cinelli and Colnago made a small number in the early 1980's. They kept the same geometry as diamond-frame Super Corsas and Superissimos which, according to accounts of riders, made some bikes with a really scary combination of flex and twitch! David Feldman
