Another Peugeot identification thread

I just picked up a cheapie Craigslist special which I plan to set up permanently on my trainer. The serial number is 8J71005, which according to Cyclespeugeot.com would indicate a likely production year of 1978. Could anyone confirm this? How about a model? Any ideas?

Also, any ideas on the bottom bracket? Would it most likely be French-threaded?

Oh, another thing: the rear brake cable gets threaded through the top tube on this one. And the rear derailleur was a Shimano SIS.

EDIT: A bit more sleuthing is making it look more like an 1984 to a 1986.

Here's a photo of a 1986. I'm still not sure of the model, though.

Uh, sorry, no thoughts from me on your bike -- I'm new to Peugeot myself. But I want to thank you for the photo above, because it helps further identify the bike I just bought last week, which is nearly identical to it -- with the exception that mine has chrome fenders & rack, plus generator, headlamp and taillamp, and a black plastic covering over the chainring. Mine is likely a 1988 model.

Miamijim has been very helpful sharing his knowledge of Peugeots, and has suggested mine is a variant of a P8, since the P8 did not come with all those add-ons. Your headbadge and rainbow striping on the seat tube does suggest mid-1980's

Because your in Canada its a crap shot as to the model. I have feeling its not a French made Peugeot becasue the serial number doesnt match the French format.

Is that the number 'stamped' into the metal? Are there any tubing decals on it or remnants of them?.

The number is stamped onto the seat tube just below the opening. In terms of other decals, what you see in the picture is what you get.

But would you say it's definitely a product of the 1980s? Meaning, it would most likely take an English-threaded bottom bracket?

Peugeot bikes of the 80's are a crap shoot in regards to threading. The following combinations are know to exist for FRENCH made Peugeots.

Headset BB

Fr Fr
Fr Sw
Fr Br
Br Br

Because your frame is Canadian made its more than likely all British.
