    Peugeot Identification?

    Okay,

    After taking it all apart and deciding that there was NO WAY I could fix it in 2 days, my Wife's Peugeot is in pieces and I'll be taking my time to fix it back up.

    We had 2 Peugeot's that we bought at the Air Force BX at RAF Lakenheath in England back in 1977. Her's is a Mixte Frame with steel rims (27x1 1/4), Full Fenders and rack with Front and rear lights with a bracket and mounted Dynamo on it. It has a BSA Alloy crank and an unbelievable looking Bottom Bracket axle.

    I was wondering what model this could be?

    My plan is to fix it back up for her. Possibly touch it up, but leave it as much as possible stock. The Wheels are pretty bad so new Alloy ones with High Flanges to mimic the originals will be installed. I'll probably replace the current steel handlebars with more modern alloys and use some Cane Creek SCR-5C levers to better fit her hands.

    I can get 700c or 27 inch wheels from my Shop. It came with 27's but I'm thinking I would be better off and have a larger choice going with the 700c's.

    What do you folks think?

    Chris

    With all the talk of Peugeot Folks on this forum, I was sure I was going to get some sort of help here. I am quite taken back by the lack of help here for this post and I was wondering if it is either the way I posted or did I leave out some critical information?

    I may be a newb to this forum, but I am not a newb to bicycles or bicycle maintenance. I was just looking for a little help to get this bike sorted back out for my Wife.

    The wheel idea sounds fine,. Alloys will stop much better then the steels. You just need to check brake reach. I see no reason to replace the handlebars.

    Model? Tough one because each market had their own designation. In the U.S. that would be a UE-18. In France they had no 27" models.

    With Peugeots, Pictures are a massive help. The Model, and S/N's seem to change depending on what the workers might have had for lunch on the day the bike was made.

    The last two bikes on my list are a 50's Lenton Grand Prix and a '64 Raleigh Record.

    I am begining to see what you folks mean. I saw the one referrence to the Retro Peugeot pages:
    http://www.retropeugeot.com/

    And looking that area over I see that the UE-18 is the closest match. That catolog does show some steel cranks and such where the one I have has an Alloy Crank. One that polishes up very nice by the way. I am begining to think that this is indeed a UE-18, but it does have a few upgrades to it.

    miamijim: The only reson I want to replace the bars is a little more comfort for my wife. The same reson I would like to put some shorter reach levers on there also. I think I can do this without taking away the classic look of this bike.

    I have a new bike for her to ride and she is riding. She's been off of the bikes for almost 7 years, so to see her riding and smiling again is a huge plus for the two of us.

    Thanks folks...

    Peugeot upgraded the UO-8/9/10 and corresponding UO/E-18 series to alloy cranks sometime in the mid-to-late 1970s.
