Six digits= sixties. White= no earlier than 1967. Any frame tubing stickers? "Tube special allegre Peugeot" or "Inoxyadable"? Location of chrome? As John E says, the one sided shifter braze ons are indicative of the UO8. I have PXs from 1967, 1972, and 1973; none of them have shifter braze ons, aside from a stop on the bottom of the down tube for the clamp on shifters. Won't claim to know my shiz, because I haven't a clue what shiz iz, but John E, T-Mar, Miami Jim know a lot between them. Probably can get it pretty close with a photo. I can generally get it within a few years by the decals.

French parts ain't that hard to find. It's a myth I spread over on the fixie board so I can buy up all the old French frames for myself.
