    Do some catalog searches and you will probably find the exact model, but it is apparently a "Competition". Its name is not Record du Monde, that label was on most all of their bikes during a certain time period. My (now sold) Peugeot P-8 circa 1982 had it on the seat tube also.

    The best part of that bike is the lightweight 531 frame and the Stronglight crankset. The Mavic rims are nice, didn't look at the hubs especially.

    Everything else is pretty much what I'd expect to see on a Peugeot for that period. Looks to be a mid-level bike in their tier. I'll do some checking to see if I can come up with any other info for you.

    bottom line is it is a very nice bike, although I'm not a fan of Simplex RDs.

    Have you tried Google? There are multiple sites that have Peugeot catalogs on line. Really no different than researching anything on the web.

    I gave the link above. It has more info on Peugeots than most other sites I've found.

    retropeugeot.com

    Look on the banner along the left side, it has tons of catalogs, year-by-year. Let your mouse lead you!

    Your chainrings are likely FIFTY TWO /42 . . . not 62/42.

    It is 52/42. I noticed the OPs stated 62/42 and just assumed it was a typo. There is no way it is 62 teeth, it would take two people to pedal it!

    Next time, try counting the teeth before jumping to conclusions. The 62 is likely the MODEL # of the crankset, not the number of teeth on that chainring.

    Have you gone to the two websites listed above? If you had, you would see that Peugeot, like most manufacturers of the era, typically used 52 as the large chainring and 42 or 40 as the small.

    If you like your Peugeot as much as it seems, take the time to research it and other models of the era. It is fun, you learn a lot.

    No problem at all. You will find lots of helpful people here in the forum. If you want to know about specifics of your bike, you can also go on the C&V forum and ask Peugeot collectors questions about reliability of components, threading issues, etc.

    The model name is on your top tube. The Competition was called a PR10 in previous years, before they started naming them.
