My New Project – Restoration of a PDM Concorde team bike 1988

30/7/2011 Update: Well after 3 years of saying I was going to do this, today I started work on the bike by striping it down so I can get the frame resprayed and chromed. I found a person who can recreate the original decals, more information on that once I have the decals under way.

    I aslo will soon have a PDM Concord like yours it used to belong to a friend. I think they are really pretty bikes.

    Looks good, is it finished yet? I have a PDM bike myself, with PDM logos instead of Concorde. Unfortunately, I had a collision with a car and ruined the fork and also slightly bent the frame, so it is considered a total loss by the bycicle shop I took it to, where they told me it was worth about EURO 175,- But since the bike is pretty rare, especially with PDM stickering, I reckon it’s worth more than that. What do you think?

    which rider rode this bike?

    1. Mark Croonen says:

      I was told at the time the bike was one of the spares so it wasn’t used by any of the riders.

    my first “real” racing bike in 1989/1990 was a Concorde PDM – loved it – did all my time trials on it – they were the big Dutch team back then – Sean Kelly?? rode for them then – my favourite riders were Steven Rooks and Gert Theunisse – Dutch of course – then Erik Breukink – this was about the Greg Lemond era – I loved the bikes though and had the PDM jerseys to go with it – Rudy Dhaenens won the World Championships on a Concorde – so this bike of yours is certainly a collectors piece – of course the team ended because there was drug allegations in 1991 – PDM pulled out in 1992
