French threads perhaps?

Just wondering. Would the axle on the Sachs hub of my 1994 Peugeot Performance 200 have French threads?

You are better off getting a whole axle assembly, They are cheap at Niagaracycle.com. Since the bearings will most likely be 1/4 in front and 3/16 in the rear, the cones are standard. Just check the length you need.

You hub axles are likely metric thread, but then just about all hub axles (except Campagnolo) have been metric thread for decades.

The axles are metric and could be either 'fine' or 'course' thread

I'd agree with John D^ except to add that it's a little murkier depending on what hubs you're talking about, and what you mean by "French":
We'd assume your Sachs hubs use hollow axles for a QR skewer, in that case the standard for French hubs are metric threads...Sachs is a multi-national company (their cycle products include what used to be Maillard, and now includes SRAM), but your hubs were probably made in FR for a '94 Peugeot, but even if Taiwan-made they would use ISO standards and so metric threads (9M x 1mm for front, 10M x 1mm rear)
The odd thing is that French solid axles used a non-metric standard 3/8" x 26 tpi and metric axles were "rare" according to Sutherlands, there's also a "rare" exception for just a Maillard 700 hub that uses 10M x .75mm (a fine metric thread)...not clear up until what years that was FR standard, but my Sutherlands is a 4th edition.

I can't agree with those sizes!

Sorry, you're right, I had them reversed, 1/4 in rear and 3/16 in front.
