    I found this old Peugeot when trashpicking. I'm planning on converting it to a fixed gear soon.

    It's not worth much, right? Some of the stuff seems rather "consumer," but I really don't know much of old road gear.

    The brakes are Mafac "Racer" series. Simplex deraileur, Stronglight "TS" cranks. Steel rims of unknown make. What's the model? I think it's got some class (the silver n' checkerboards are cool), even if it's rather cheap.

    Here's the problem: the left crank arm has a damaged / enlarged mounting hole from being used when loose. Where can I find one that'll match? I've looked around on eBay a few times when I first got the bike; I didn't find much other than expensive, modern stronglight cranks.

    If I end up replacing the BB, what should I look for? English, French threads? What if I only replaced the crankarms-- what would fit the current BB?

    Many thanks.

    Actually all those stronglight cranks looked pretty much the same. I have 3 or 4 from various compaines and all look almost identical. Try an LBS and see if they have some used arms... I know we have a couple.

    Better pictures of the components and a description of any labels on the frame would be useful...

    What You have is a Peugeot UO9, circa mid to late seventies (I think, I recently dis-assembled a nearly identical bike with the same cranks). Basically a UO8 with a cotterless crank. If you look on the bottom of the bottom bracket shell, there should be a serial number complete with model number, though if memory serves, they're on a taped on piece of paper which may have fallen off. The bottom bracket will be French threaded; if the cups on the one you have are intact, just keep them, but regrease and re-bearing the BB.

    The Stronglight cranks on this model take the old style 23.35mm stronglight crank remover, I believe (check). You might look for the "peugeot" badged stronglight cranks used on models like the UO10 and PFN10E (these take a standard 23mm crank remover); they will fit your BB spindle perfectly and can sometimes be found cheaply (WARNING: Some late Peugeot badged cranks are in fact Japanese made and require a JIS spindle. If in doubt, ask-- the Japanese ones say "Japan" on the inside of the crankarm). You can switch over to Japanese cranks but should change out the BB spindle in this event; this can be problematic as the french cups are sometimes thinner walled than Japanese ones,so the distance between the bearing surfaces on the French spindles are further. If a standard JIS spindle does not work, get an Italian JIS spindle.

    Peugeot BBs made through the mid-1970s were French-threaded. Those made in 1980 were Swiss-threaded. [I am told my PKN-10 is definitely a 1980, based on the B0xxxxx S/N.] A few years later, perhaps after CCM of Canada took over production, they were English-threaded.

    Speaking of Peugeot

    Pic's of my current "Re-furbees" are attached.
    Anyone have an idea on the "Slant" frame model number?

    Saved the "Slant frame form the scrap yard, paid $20 for
    the course. Tried to save the original "Pearl" finish, but
    it was just too dinged up.

    Will start to re-fit soon and post completed pic's when done.

    Regards to all:
