Dao Van Tinh has spent more than 20 years collecting Peugeot bicycles made in France.

Part of what makes his collection very special is that all of his bicycles come in pairs – with one male and one female bike for each model. The bikes are also arranged by year and color.

Collecting antique Peugeot bicycles has been a decades long passion for this man who travels across Europe looking to purchase and bid on the bikes he dreamed of as a kid.
