PEUGEOT Bicycle Model Identification help!!!!!

Hello everyone - thanks for giving up some of your time to help me out with my problem.

Basically, I found a Peugeot Bicycle dumped in a bush (it really was dumped, belonged to nobody) and decided to take it home because the frame (which is Mangalloy HLE) was in very good condition. It is a road bike, with darkish grey paint, with the word "Premiere" in yellow on the right side of the top tube and "Made in France" on the left side, with "Peugeot" on each side of the downtube.

There are stripey decals on the seat post in the colours of Yellow, Pink and Turquoise. It is a 10 speed model.

But after spending hours searching the internet to identify it, I met with no success, and so I decided to try this wonderful forum to find out if any of you guys might know how to identify the year and model from my bike's serial, which is: Y001 50082 (stamped into the bottom bracket).

It's a really nice road bike (funnily, it does not have drop hadlebars, but regular straight bars) and I would love to know its model and year, to see if it is worth anything. If not, then i'll just respray it, because there are some rusty bits.

I greatly appreciate any help you can give me, and look forward to checking back soon! :-)

Thanks, Dean

There are a few Peugeot experts in this forum, - I am not one of them ;-)

If you have any pictures, that would help alot.

I'm going to guess it's an '85. If you look at this web page: http://www.vintage-trek.com/component_dates.htm it'll help you date some of the components on your bike which will help narrow down the year.

HLE is what Peugeot used on their lower end bikes during 80's. It doesn't mean it's a bad bike, just not top of the line. Some HLE bikes were sold with very good components.

Yellow pink and turqouise place in the late eighties. Thats only the frames serial number. There should be small paper sticker on the BB or chainstay with more info.

Sounds like foreign bike as I dont recall a 'trophy' model.

Pics please...

I've just followed tjspiel's sensible advice and looked everywhere for date codes. And I found some on both of my wheel hubs. They're both made by Maillard in France and the front hub has [27 84] and the rear hub has [38 84] stamped into them. This means the front hub was made in the 27th week of the year 1984 and the rear was made in the 38th week of 1984. So the bike must have been made in 1984. I'll upload the pictures later. At least I'm getting closer - now all we need to find out is the actual model!

Couldn't find any more serials or numbers on or near the bottom bracket though.

Well, better figure "no earlier than" 1984. I'm sure a huge company like Peugeot had a pretty good stockpile of the wheels... which they used on a great many models.

Bicycles built during the 80's have eight digits and a letter prefix. Peugeots built in France during the 1980's can be dated by year through use of their serial numbers. Following a letter prefix, typically Y or B, the first number of the numeral code indicates the bicycle's model year (ex. PKN-10 #B 0667631, built in 1980).

In reality they have 3 different and distinct numbers.

1. Model and size PX10 54 for example
2. Sequential Model number abcxyzv

1 & 2 will be on a small paper sticker and refer to the specific model

3. Frame serial number. This is the 'Y' or 'B' number and it has spaces in it
Ex: Y123 56789. I believe Y123 is a frame model designation and 56789 is a sequential number for the frame

Yup, that's my old PKN-10E (now my son's) cited in that example. The decals and Swiss BB threading were consistent with circa 1980 construction.

Where is this bike located?

Bike is located in Horsham, West Sussex, United Kingdom!
Looking at some Peugeot catalogues on the internet, the bike in question has exactly the same decals, only in different colours, to the Peugeot 1989 Aspin on this page: http://home.wanadoo.nl/peugeotshow/images/1989_4.jpg

Since this decal scheme hasn't shown before 1989, I wonder if this bike is post-1989?
Does anyone know when peugeot stopped manufacturing their bicycles?

Peugeot never stopped making bikes as production still occurs in France. It would be safe to assume its '89 or newer.

Hi everyone.

I need to identify a model of Peugeot.

I have few things to say:
it is a very old one, was owned by my grandpa born in 1914, but I dont have a clue when had he bought is
it is a single speed
classic
all black, but on the vertical rod there are two red stripes painted
in the front the classical peugeot bycicles sign,
and a small wing on the front splasher/fender (sorry, I am not an English)
the painting of the splashers were black, with two white stripes
and this was how the wheels looked like
I do not know, where did he bought it, but somewhere in czechoslovakia, if that does matter.
it has a steel mechanical front brake, no bowden, just mechanical from upwards.

yeah, and I remember there was a beautiful leather case attachable, a triangle shaped, with peugeot writing on it.

I would like to restore this bike, but first I need to find out, whether there are spare parts available.

Thanks for help and sorry for the not very precise description.

B.

If it came with lights and fenders, it sounds like a UE-8. Pictures help a lot around here, as do seat post diameters.

It's just the model name. The UE-8 model is an upgraded version of the UO-8. The UO-8 model is like yours, but without the fenders and lights. UO-18 would be a mixte version (ladies?) without the lights etc, and a UE-18 would be the mixte version, with lights etc.

The graphics on your UO-8 would make it a 1974-1976 year.

This link will take you to a 1974 catalog :
http://www.bikeboompeugeot.com/Broch...20Page%204.jpg

In my earlier reply I said "UO-8" but I meant "UE-8" for your bike.

The gold stripes on the downtube have slanted ends, which means it's between 1974 and 1976. If the stripes are straight at the ends it is 1971-1973. Not all catalogs show all models, since there were different models marketed for the U.S., Canada, or France.

As for value, it just depends on where you live, but for that bike in my area of North Florida, probably between $125 and $250, if it's complete.

I also wanted to add that Peugeot serial numbers mean nothing, there's no sequence in them to decode, you just have to know the models or use the few catalogs available to know what year they are.

This is true but only for prior to circa 1980.
