Don't know the "Team Lite 1500." Could it be a team line?

I brought back a 2000 "Team Line" (no "1500" or other model-name appendage) frame when I was in
France a couple years ago. I hadn't seen a contemporary era (and never seen a "pro level) Peugeot in
the States for years. Disappointing to see Peugeot, Gitane and Vitus disappear from the pro peleton.
La Pierre and Decathlon are pretty much department store type bikes and the pro frames are
apparently custom built (e.g. Cyfac) in team livery.

I was attracted to the Peug by the beautiful finish and paint scheme (from the Festina/Virenque era
. . . Blue/White fade). I'm also somewhat of a French bike fanatic; I already owned 2 Vitus
(Vitii?), and I also brought back a LOOK from France as well.

The Team Line is made in FRANCE (most modern consumer models aren't), with oversized aluminum
tubing, smoothed TIG welded joints (no visible welds), straight fork, short wheelbase, "arched"
seatstays.

Very stiff (in 56cm), responsive frame. I set mine up with Stronglight , TA, Mavic, LOOK components.

Photo if you're interested.
