Peugeot crossframe, circa 1889

This very early Peugeot with frame number 7588 has a strange colour and transfers from a bicycle shop in Rennes, France. The current owner leaves it that way: it is part of the history of the bike and the paint dates as far back as the 1930's. Better pictures will follow later, but these give us a clear view of the model and the serial numbers, that were engraved by Peugeot in nearly every part of the bike.
I guess the bike dates from 1888-1889.

This seems to be the same type
as Peugeot 3080 from 1887,
