    My new Peugeot super sport

    Peugeot super sport
    I picked this up today and plan on keeping it instead of flipping. Can anyone tell me what year this would be? I think it is somewhere between 79-83 UO-9 with every “option” available at the time. Does anyone else have any info on my new ride? I have 17 close up pictures posted on flickr in addition to this one.

    Great find!

    Here it is in the 1980 French catalog.

    I am not sure that these were ever offered for sale stateside with the fenders & etc - but I've seen a couple similar bikes that were sold in PX's in West Germany during the period and brought home.

    PS - It's a PX8M

    Suggest you check out the catalogs available at Bike-Boom Peugeot. Love the fenders and I think it'll look much better with a good washing.

    The tag says it's PX8. There's one similar here, but it has "Power Shift" stem shifters. I'm sure that yours is not a model that was sold in the USA.

    Thanks for the info all. I plan to tear it down and clean and shine every bit of it. If I do decide to sell, what do you think it would go for?

    Also, would it be possible to add a third chainring or maybe a larger cassette? It isn't exactly flat in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

    Either could be done. Try the Freewheel first (this bike is likely pre-cassette), it's easier and cheaper. I'm able to jam a 12x30 on my old MAVIC-equipped PX-10. Max cog size and max wrap depend on your rear derailleur, and with friction shifing, it really doesn't matter how many speeds.

    I use a 14X28 on all of mine That derailer will handle it. A 30 will require a long cage.

    I agree: It would be a shame to "customize" it. It is it's very originality that makes it especially desirable - it's not like there's a lot of these around.

    .... for what exactly? It's not bent, scratched, or dented.
