Nice bike! I was referring to the previous 'travesty' Peugeot, where I believe the rear derailleur hanger was so precisely removed. I think the braze-ons were removed as well.

Perhaps I have a...

New tires, new cables/housings, clean and regrease it. Probably wouldn't cost you over 30$ to bring it into decent riding shape.
I would look for a shorter stem and seatpost to bring it back into...

Thanks for enlightening my ignorance a bit, riding in one gear only as a fashion statement didn't make any sense. I typically stay in the same gear for most of my riding, occasionally going up or...

I just don't see the appeal of a fixed-gear bike. As a twenty-year-old with hair, I refuse to wear a helmet to flatten my luscious mane. The hair-in-the-wind thing is pretty hollywood. That is a...

My friend has a monster sized UO9 pretty much identical to your bike, minus the fenders. Really nice bike but way too big for either of us (I measured 62cm, + or - a few). He has a "UO9" decal on the...

I purchased a '77 for 60$, but it has some aesthetic issues. Rides great.

As Huerro mentioned, if it's in perfect condition both aesthetically and mechanically, 125$ wouldnt be too bad. There are...

1)Natural cycles, pardon the pun. The popularity of the vintage bike will mean an increase in it's cost (not value) which will eventually hit a peak which will deter those half-heartedly interested...

People would try to sell that bike for +300$ here in Montreal. Low-end road bikes in questionable shape go for 125$.

Personally I would just hold onto the bike and enjoy the ride! I would also...

Choosing a colour for the handlebar tape must be difficult due to the bright orange colour on the bike. I think you chose the best option, with black being the other best option....

Thanks for the input! I'll give it a test ride and see if I'm comfortable. If it's too awkward for me I'll hold onto old 'n heavy.

Peugeot trade, good or bad deal?

A friend of mine has a 1982 Peugeot UO9 identical to the one seen here (http://cyclespeugeot.com/images/1982_Peugeot_P8-P18_UO9_UO10.jpg) that is too big for him. The frame is a bit of a monster for...

Thanks guys!

I am definitely not a PQist, so unfortunately the 140$ just isn't worth it for Parizeau pride. It would be a nice 20$ find at a garage sale, though.

Interesting. Are these bikes unique to my region, or has anyone seen or heard of them before?

This is the second time I see a 'Tour de Quebec' bike posted on CL. I have no clue whether or not the bike is quality or garbage.
For price reference, old low-end Peugeots usually run for 80$-100$...
