my first peugeot

well its fairly low end, and in my least favorite color (red) but I thought the bike was worth the 10 bucks. Its a U014, red W full chrome fork, not sure what year right now but obvliously 80s. Tubing I think is reynolds 453, think it has a 6sp cluster.. shimano "light" action derailleurs, 27" aluminum rims. Its in good shape.. has some extras like a really rusty chrome bottle cage, a very cheap lock on the top tube, one of those plasticy things for a U lock bolted on the downtube.. and a kickstand - haha (; feels like it weighs about 26lbs as is.

I'll see about some photos tomorrow.

Sounds like it may be a non-U.S. model as the only U.S. UO14 was a blue 1983 model...

Click the link, scroll down and click on the 1987 catalog then scroll down to 1983. A major reorganization is in the works so please excuse the mess....

Well I am in Canada so that would make sense, i'm sure it was built by pro cycle over in Quebec.

Going by decals comparing to images of others on your site I'd figure its most likely from 84, but I'll check out the component date codes tomorrow



EDIT: ugh, ok so I just measured it and this is way too big for me, which is odd cause looking at it it really looked my size... 59cm ctc seat tube and a 60cm top tube.. looks like im gonna be stripping it and selling the frame set.

Still glad I got it for the wheelset, the tires are usuable and a lot more narrow than normal 27" wheels, the tires are by peugeot, usable and labeled 27 X 1/3 which I never saw before
