    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...

    Leave them if you want it to look stock. Remove them if you're tempted to use them!

    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...

    I recall seeing the blue/orange combo somewhere on this forum, not suited for my taste but it works out. I think neutral colours are the way to go when dealing with intense colour. Dark brown shellac...

    Classic.

    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....

    30 speeds? Dual-suspension? Have the biking conditions changed that much over the span of 40 years?

    I seem to be running on the original Mafac brake pads, they're in fair condition and the stopping power seems to be quite good. I should note that everything seems fine for me as I'm new to bikes....

    The UO9 in question has the handlebars rotated upwards even more than your UO8 pictured. First order of business is to bring the handlebars back into place. The alien look isn't very nice, nor...

    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.

    My collection could really use another bike. (thus making my total two)

    Peugeot trade, good or bad deal?

    A friend of mine has a 1982 Peugeot UO9 identical to the one seen here that is too big for him. The frame is a bit of a monster for me as well, roughly 2-3cms of space between the top tube and my...

    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.

    Tour de Quebec?

    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$-100$...
