I happened to run across a thread that went by in July and noticed a Peugeot UO8. I have one stored in a garage and to my knowledge never ridden. "Tube special allegre peugeot" is on the seat tube. In the mid seventies from Virginia it was supposed to go with me to Florida but got substantially waylaid, and when found it went to a bike shop and sat. I was transferred all over and so it was confined to a shipping box put into various storage facilities and almost forgotten. Six or so years ago it caught up with me, unwrapped, and its been in a enclosed but unheated garage. The bike took some heat in Florida, Virginia, Arizona while being enclosed in a container for several years but not ridden and ruined. Is this bike worth bringing out of mothballs? The old (knife) seat, for example, is crazed and my butt has increased in size. The bike has some surface oxidation on the wheel spokes and some in the wavy serrations on the rims for the brakes, but nothing at all serious. The paint and decals have held up. The air pump is missing and it has a spring loaded carrier installed on the back, but other than that original as far as I know. So, 1. What is it worth and would refurbishing make the cash outlay worth it? 2. It's been awhile. What kind of bike is a UO8? Touring? 3. Is there literature in English I might find on the bike? 4. Can anyone still fix these bikes and are parts still around? I think I paid nearly $200 for the bike and prep and carrier when new with the advice that it was a good bike for getting around in Florida. I never found out then but am willing to give it a try if those of you out there who know advise me the better alternative-go or no go. 5. If no go what can I do with this and no fair asking me to donate it to you.
