    Another Peugeot to Identify

    I posted this earlier on the Catch of the Day thread -- can you help ID the model and year? I picked it up at the Goodwill last Friday.

    After checking through cyclespeugeot and retropeugeot, I am still not positive I know the year and model. The HLE Mangalloy decal and rainbow stripes place it in the mid-1980's. The serial number from the underside of the BB is Y8C5 21730. But there is another set of numbers on a bit of white paper attached to the left chainstay, which read thus:

    P8M5 W IE
    6380647 60

    It's equipped with Sachs-Huret shifter and RD; Weinmann brakes; Rigida SuperChromix rims; Michelin Select 27 x 1-1/8" tires; Soubitez headlamp/taillamp w/generator; a bottle cage and bottle; and a Cateye MITY2, which I assume is a speedometer.

    Good day. I am only a few years late with this reply. I have posted about this model in a different thread before. I own a bike very very similar to this one. The small piece of paper taped to the chain stay is the Model of the bike. P8 M5 yada yada. It is some PH8 variant and appears to be from the English market. Here is a photo of my HLE burgundy tour bike. It is very very heavy 35lbs, it is deceptively fast and very squirrely. I would never take both my hands off of the yoke of this bike. It even has a strange gas pipe ringing sound from the frame when I ride it. It is a cool bike.Homer 007.jpg
