eBay item # 140180304390 A very reputable seller, so surely no intention to mislead. But, nothing about this bike seems to quite fit right "together".

Seen the head lugs before... but on earlier bikes... and not Peugeots.... Double eyelets on front fork end, but single on rear... Seat stay caps are unfamiliar to me... Unusual top tube pump clip with pump head braze-on below seat lug (1960s?)... Double down tube braze-ons for shifters... Braze-on bottom bracket derailleur cable guides... Chromed stay ends and fork ends... 7-o'clock top tube cable brake cable braze-ons... Peugeot headbadge foil sticker (mid-1970s?)...

Everything looks mis-matched... and not Peugeot. So, what the heck is this bike? Not bad, but I'm curious who really made this one.
