The GT and Honor are both steel derailleurs. The Honor is actually about 40g lighter, so unless you need the extra 6T capacity of the GT, I'd stick with the Honor. Both could handle a 30T cog, but the GT's capacity was 34T while the Honor was 28T. The Honor was an entry level, general purpose derailleur, while the GT was an entry level, touring derailleur. Neither are in the same league as the Superbe which was a high end racing derailleur. It weighs about 1/2 of the Honor, but could only handle a 25T large cog and only had a capacitiy of 26T. If your Peugeot originally came with an Honor, it probably has gearing that is too wide for the Superbe. The only reasons to switch to a GT is if you want wider gearing than your Honor can handle or it is just plain worn out.
