Peugeot

My girlfriend asked me if I could buy her dad a cheap road bike to commute and I found this Peugot and got it for 5 bucks, its just the frame, pretty good condition, some rust spots no knowledge of old bike was just wondering what it was.
I was also wondering how the old school rear deraillaur system works with the hangar piece and if I needed an older one to make it work.
here are some pictures.






Yes i know the rear wheel is in backwards, I was in a rush when I got home to get somewhere

Dropouts without an integral hanger use a deralleur with a claw. The claw is a simple bracket that attaches to the top pivot of the derailleur body. It has a notch that aligns with the droput slot and the axle fits into. It is held onto the dropout using a small bolt and flanged nut that fits into the dropout slot.

Derailleurs with claws are still used on entry level bicycles and should be available though your LBS for about $10.00.

The frame appears to be an AO8 or UO8 model with a replacement front fork. Unfortunately, we would need the original fork to determine exactly which model it is. Circa 1975/1976.

It's a perfectly good frame for building a bike, but if you don't have at least some parts lying around to put on the bike, the cost is going to exceed that of a new bike.

Thank you T-Mar!I have parts laying around from previous bikes that I am going to throw on it, I just need Cables, housing and bars.
Also becuase of the replacement fork the rear caliper brake that I was going to put on it won't fit(short reach) would it be okay to put a long reach on the back and a short on the front?

Recently I have been looking through the C&V forums and found it so much more fascinating to me.
I love older bikes.

Be aware that the Peugeot will have a French thread bottom bracket, so you may have to keep the existing cups and find a new spindle to work with whatever crank you have. Either that or buy a new French thread bottom bracket from e.g. Velo Orange. The fork is an aftermarket replacement, and should be English thread, saving you some bother. If those are the original wheels (they don't look like it, but who knows), the rear hub may require a French thread freewheel. And yes, a long reach brake on the back and short reach on the front will be just fine.

I see the logic with choosing an old Peugeot as a "cheap" rebuild project for a commute bike because of lower intial cost, but I will have some concern about finding all the parts you will need. There could be a whole bunch of parts on that frame that will need French threaded and sized components that are getting harder and harder to find. God forbid that it might also have a Swiss threaded bottom bracket which was rare even when they were making these olde Peugeots.
Just something to consider when getting into the classic French bike thing....
If you do like to get into classic French bikes, it would much easier to find parts for them if the frame is a later (at least 1980's) model with 531 Reynolds tubing. These would most likely have Italian or British threading and diameters. JMOs
I still hope you could find all the parts to build up that old Peugeot. It's still worth saving such classics.
BTW, the fork seems to be non-original but it looks like it's of decent quality.
