For what it's worth, my beater/commuter is a 1970 UO-8, red with decals like yours. I bought it as a bare frame in the early 1970s as a UCLA grad student, when I worked at a Peugeot-Nishiki dealership. Mine is a great ride, but only because it has aluminum cranks (Sugino), aluminum road quill pedals, aluminum rims (700C front, still 27" rear), SunTour ultra-6 freewheel, SunTour rear derailleur, Shimano front derailleur, SunTour ratchet barcon shift levers, aluminum bars, Salsa stem, and a Terry Liberator saddle.
