    It looks like circa '84 UE8M - A European issue of the U-08 with lighting, rack and fenders.

    Interesting that the Euro version retained a lugged frame and cottered cranks after the U.S. version went lugless and cotterless.

    You did very well at that price.

    Lube it up and you won't have to worry about replacing parts in your lifetime.
    Just be sure to get 9.0 French cotters for it for when you button it back up - not English 9.5.

    It's a good riding bike (like a U-08) - Down the road though, consider getting some alloy rims for it - it will feel and stop better .

    So after getting off work i partially took the bike apart to clean/lube things up. While i was doing that i found that the front tire was flat and so i started to take it off when i noticed that the tires/tubes both say made in france. Which got me think that maybe they could be the original tubes and tires. If thats true then this bike really hasnt been ridden much cuz the tread is not even worn.

    Read How Old Is My Bicycle? and you might have a bit of fun figuring out the vintage yourself. It is really quite easy to do and get reasonable accuracy in the process.

    I did have one of those Peugeots a while back and like the OP's it was fully accessorized. I did find the bike to feel heavy and in all honesty never rode it that much. I did sell the bicycle locally and the new owner loves it.

    Have fun with your new old bike and keep the rubber side down.

    Its older sister showed up at our church yard sale this week, a 1974 UO18. While dirtier than yours, it has not seen much road time either.

    PS-

    You'll need a large, good quality mill file and a vise to shape the cotter to fit your individual bike and to ensure a full-flat contact with the bb spindle.

    (It is not difficult, it just requires a steady, deliberate hand to keep a flat ramp on the cotter, by filing it a little and then trying it on for fit, iteratively, till you are satisfied.)
