    See the pictures:

    I picked up this tiny black Peugeot this morning - it was being discarded after years of storage. I got it for nothing because the two crank arms were no longer 180 degrees apart. Now I have to locate pins for the crank.

    Simplex derailleurs & Mafac Racer bits, "Made in France" on the seat tube, and has a leather Peugeot Sport seat.

    No model name on it so I suppose it might be a U08 ?

    It is U08 level if not an actual U08 probably from the late 70's to mid-80's timeframe. If you get new cotters be sure to get the correct size as the French cotters are often a different size than others (go figure...) or just upgrade to a 3 piece crank.

    Is that the original fork? It looks like a replacement in one of the photos.

    The front rim is the original but the forks have been replaced.

    As far as I can tell Peugeot did not have all-chromed forks on this model.

    I found the right 9mm cotter this morning ($1.95) at the local bike shop.

    The LAST one they had. Pressed in nicely !!

    Excellent! I like that color scheme and those old Peugeots are supposed to ride nicely even if they are a bit on the heavy side. Enjoy it, looks like a fun ride. Not bad for $1.95! PS, take it easy on the shift levers, they'll break on you if you're not careful.
