Not sure if its a U08 or a U09 what do you think??

Just picked this beauty up last weekend. Rides great. But im not sure what model it is. As you can probably tell, the fork isnt original. Thats why I need to know the model.

Good question, there isnt one, nor is there that little paper tag I've grown to rely on.

Steel cranks give it away as being a UO8.

All UO9's have alloy cranks.

UO10 brought alloy rims into the picture.

Without the original fork, is it possible to tell?

Just trying to learn about low end Peugeots. I've never owned one.

Why do you ask?

What is the serial number? My 1970s UO10 had "UO10" as part of the serial number.

On my UO14 (I think) the serial number is just peeking out from under the shifter cable guide...
But for some reason I don't think you'll be drilling out the rivets to check lol.
