I picked up this partial Peugeot UO-14 a year ago. I decided to make it a winter bike and have it ready by the end of October. Better late than never!
When I started to get in to it I found a stuck stem and ended up destroying it removing it. Also had a mishap with the left crank arm when I tried to pull it.
This thread details the early stages of the build.
Thanks to a few bikeforums friends, especially pastorbob who traded me for the rear hub, the parts started to come together.
This bike was built around a Sturmey-Archer AW 3-speed hub. I decided to use 27" wheels because I had a wheelset from a 1984 Trek 620 that I sold as a frameset. The rims are Matrix Anodic T. The rear wheel had a Helicomatic setup that was skipping, so I cut out the spokes and relaced, using brass washers to help the spoke heads seat in the thin steel flanges of the AW hub.
I also need to credit rhm for all his helpful answers. Every thread I posted about this build has an answer from him in it.
The shifter is from a Raleigh Twenty, I think. When I was cleaning it up I discovered a cool feature, a visual gear indicator. Here you can see a yellow mark in the handle. I retouched the indicator with some model paint. Red=Low, Yellow=Neutral, Blue=High.
Brake levers are from a mountain bike.
