    What is the serial number? To me, it looks like an early 1980s model.

    Sweet, looks like an 80's with that chrome fork. I have had an UE-8 for the last 22 years. It's a fun ride but a bit heavy at 32 pounds.

    Question for those who know bike geometry. Why do touring bikes, mine in particular, have that extra inch plus wheelbase?

    I think that the Peugeot logo on the top tube places it around 1983.

    1) clearance for mudguards
    2) clearance for wider (and generally larger-diameter) tires
    3) better chainline with triple chainrings
    4) slightly more forgiving ride

    Many of us love the old classic touring "10-speeds" because of their workmanship and their more relaxed frame geometries. They are among the most practical road bicycles ever made.

    Another reason for the longer wheelbase is longer chainstays that provide more clearance for your heels so they are not constantly catching on your panniers. It is kind of a chicken/egg thing as far as which benefit came first, but they all go together.

    Hi

    I think that's the serial number:
    2357404 pf10e 56

    what does it say?

    By the way I took it out for a daytrip today, and it was so great. Climbs great, which I absolutly love.

    Just the saddle is really a pain, but it looks so great that it's an original peugeot leather thing. But I can't sit now on hard surfaces, it killed me
