i guess so. It is in fact a (very rotten) twin of my Peugeot halfracer... frame, headbadge, cranks... the same. http://www.wooljersey.com/gallery/martl/Peugeot+Halfracer+1920ies/ Mine is, acccording to the vendor i bought it from, a 1920ies model.

i'm curios how high the rusty wonder in this auction will go :)

Joe King is right, the position on these bikes is rather odd, and of course they weigh a ton. Fun to ride it around the block, but doing 200km on one of those? :) My Automoto from a decade later looks and feels like a modern bike compared to it.
