Wondering What Style Peugeot I've got here.

So as far as I can tell its a Galibier. I'm missing a few numbers of the Serial number I THINK it says pgn1cm64. The number on the bottom bracket is b4 04 51063.
Specs.

Heilico matic hubs

Rigida wheels

Nervar cranks

Weinmann brakes

Simplex derailleur

Reynolds 501 tubing.

The cloest match I found was the 86 Galibier or the PGN 10 GS. Can someone please help??

Fuzzy pictures, taken from the non-drive side of a bicycle, are of minimal help when trying to determine make, model, year - or anything else about the bike. That said, better pictures, and more detail in your explanation, will be a real benefit to those trying to help you determine what it is you wish to know.

I hope that is a help.

Looks like a 1984 PGN 10, I think I can see a setscrew on the seat tube to set the post height, an 84 only feature. I had an 85 (quill seatpost), very nice riding bike, if it fits you, you will enjoy riding it.

It appears that the paper sticker is still on the left chainstay. Unless it is damaged, it should tell you the model and frame size of your bike.

+1 to a 1984 Peugeot PGN10. The decal scheme, serial number and Reynolds 501 fork would make it a 1984 or 1985 PGN10 while the Simplex derailleurs would narrow it to 1984, as the 1985 model used Huret.

The seat post set screw makes it an '84 by default.

Thanks!!

Thanks for all the feed back guys! Here are some better pictures of my wonderful machine. So from what your saying its an 84 PGN-10? The little paper tag with the serial number is damaged so I can only make out a few of the letters and numbers but it does begin with PGN. It ends with the number 64. Is this the size?

As the festive season is over your wrapping paper should really be put away.

Seriously though, nice ride, hope it fits.

The major difference i see between the PGN and PSV is one has clinchers and the other has tubular wheels. Looking for another difference i see now that the PGN has 501 Reynolds tubing and the PSV Super Vitus 980, so in conclusion you have a !1984 PGN10 like it was mentioned b4. Nice ride looks like fun in the spring

In hindsight, that set screw holding the seatpost was a terrible idea. Especially since Peugeot used very soft steel for the braze-on. I had to rig up a quill seatpost, because mine is stripped.

Another question I had is I want to change the wheel set to something wider. Right now it has 700x 25c wheels, but I do not like how narrow they are. Are there any other sizes that I can use with out having to over haul or make too much modification to the bike?

27x1 1/4 is pretty average size wheel but most riders prefer the 700 c size rim

try 700c 28. Makes a big difference IME.
I have had good luck (wear, punctures) using Vittoria Zaffiro tyres.
