Just be careful on that Peugeot UO-8! I know that model well. My dad ran a bike shop in the NYC area for many years and we replaced many of the defective original forks with the lethal seam down the back side of the blades.. The seam acted as a stress point that caused many of the forks to collapse under load, resulting in some cases in serious injury to the unfortunate rider. The PX-10 of the period used a much sturdier and safer seamless fork constructed of 531 tubing.
