Maintaining and Updating The Peugeot Tandem
The mudguards originally fitted were stainless steel and also served as mountings for the dynamo lights. For this reason they had thicker than normal stays and unique mounting points.
There is no mudguard bridge as such, but a pair of brazed on tabs on the fork crown securing the mudguards by 2 pairs of nuts and bolts. Ther headlamp mounting on the front is supported by a sturdy "U" shaped stay and a second stay is fitted to the bottom of the mudguard.
The rear mudguard has only one stay. It is at the bottom rear of the mudguard. Instead of a top stay the top of the 'guard is secured to the carrier rack by a bracket. Instead of a mudguard bridge there is an alloy cast part that is secured to the mudguard by a spring clip and secured to the bridge on the frame by a nut and bolt. This part also serves as the mounting for the carrier rack.
What to Do
If your mudguards are bent or scratched or you just want to replace them with something lighter, you can replace them with Velo Orange Zeppelin Mudguards which are very similar in design to the original Peugeot ones and use the same fittings.
