please help with info for this Bike
It is a P8 but I can't understand all lettering
P8 SHM .60
P8 = Model ?
SHM = ???
.60 - Frame Size?
5213028 = S/N ?
Unfortunatly the frame is to big for me.
Should I bother renovating it ?
it requiers at least new chain and tires. and a good tune up.
If so for how much US$ can I sell it ?

I'm going to guess it is a mid 80's P8 in the 60cm frame size.
Can you name any mfgr and model name/number of the important components?
Can you post a picture of the total bike from the drive side?

Parts and Frame
Next weekend Cleaning...
any sugestions on metirials to clean with?
Dish Soap water?
Scrubbing with Iron wool?
WD40 and Simple Green are your cleaning friends. Steel wool will do more damage than good.
Do a search on rust for treating rusty parts. There are endless threads on this topic.
Watch your expenses, as this bike in clean, ready to ride condition is worth $125 to $150.
Would I restore this bike myself? Probably not, as it will take a significant amount of work, and was a pretty low end bike in its day. As is, you might get $25 to $50 for it. I have a very similar Peugeot (similar condition too) that I paid $14 for. I will part it out.
