help identifying 70's peugeot

Hey all,

Just got this Peugeot for $40. Works great but it's in dire need of some TLC. Havent quite been able to identifying it. Closest I can come to is that it's most likely a late mid 70's model, possible a P(something). It's got Simplex derailleurs, Mafac Racer brakes, Lyotard pedals and Rigida rims. Made in france decal.

****Also I forgot to mention.. on the bottom bracket it says RY F5

*** I also forgot to mention that the pump mounts are on the downtube

UO-8, or something essentially comparable. Jim's charts at Cyclespeugeot would suggest 1977-1978, though the headbadge doesn't add up.

I have my husbands 1972 Peugeot- purchased March, 1972 in Riverside, Calif. I think its a A08 - its not a P model i have been researching a TON - to find exactly which model it is - on the bottom bracket - you will find a plate stamped on it is a 7 digit numerical number if it is this its 1970's if its 6 digits its 1960's if it starts with a letter then 7 digits its late 1970-80's. Hope this helps and for $20 unless its wrecked what a bargain!!!

your's is white - and there is one online like it which is a A08 - http://retropeugeot.com/

a site i have been to a LOT lately. hope this helps. mine is in very good condition - i do ride it.

If there was a plate on the bottom bracket it's no longer there. Only thing that is etched into the bottom bracket is 'RY F5'. And thanks, the A08 looks exactly like mine.

Late 1970s AO8, you can find out more on Jim's website. Exact year does not really matter, as they made millions of them during that time. It certainly would not affect the value. $40 is about market value for one in that shape. Needs quite a bit of TLC, but nothing expensive as long as you do the work yourself. Cleaned up and ready to go, these bikes bring about $125 to $150 around here. Paint appears to be in good shape, which is always a plus.

Its a bottom end model, but people like the styling, lugs, and overall appearance. And they tended to be much lighter weight wise than their competition.

I have rehabbed several UO8s. Upgrading them can be costly due to the french threading (somewhat unique). The parts are out there, but they command a premium. Reusing what you have is the way to go (you already own those parts!). Of course, tires and cables are standard size. Be careful with those plastic Simplex derailleurs, they tend to crumble. You can find metal Simplex derailleurs that would make a nice upgrade, but they are kind of pricey. Pretty much any claw type rear derailleur will work, I put a nice Suntour unit ($10 on ebay) on my last one.

Type IV downtube decal puts the bike in the 1977 to 1978 period.

Quote from Jim's Peugeot website: "Prior to 1979 it is NOT possible to identify a Peugeots year of production from its serial number. Regardless of what you've read and where you've read it it simply isn't possible!!!"

You might want to look back at Jim's site regarding his serial number warning:
