I recently found what I believe to be a 1952 PH 8 at a local value village, and I had a few questions about it.
First of all...is this indeed a PH 8 from 1952? What is the frame made of, I cannot find a sticker like in the later 70's models like Tube Allege Peugeot/Carbolite 103/Reynolds or anything of the sorts.
The components are a mix of Suntour and Motobecane, which I don't get...I am guessing the motobecane compenents were put on later, doesn't seem like peugeot would use a competitors components. Does anyone know what the original components for a 1952 PH 8 were?
Also, the fork is all chrome, was it stripped? All the catalogue pictures I can find of the PH 8 show a painted fork.
And finally, the headbadge is a sticker that appears newish and is peeling off a little. Is this original? Thank you very much!
