AO-8, one step down from UO-8 (no chrome on fork).

Some components non original.

I'd fix it up but not spend much $.

What cheap parts would you suggest using to clean it up a bit? Mechanically, the bike works great however wouldn't mind maybe changing brakes and doing a couple small things estetically.

+1

as to dating perhaps 1975-76. very little of the original machine is there parts-wise. fixing it up would be a bit of a "tin of worms" project not really meriting the candle.

Those brakes can work just fine. New cables and brake pads, along with proper adjustment, and you are ready to go.

Not worth "restoring". The original parts that are missing were nothing great, and no one is collecting entry level Peugeots.

This is the UO-8 I sent to college with my daughter. It is a low end model, similar to yours. I took it apart, cleaned, lubed, adjusted. Kept almost all of the original components. Replaced rims (the original rims were steel which isn't good in a wet area like where I live; I rebuilt the wheels with some $40 used alloy rims, Mavic MA40). Replaced handlebars (not necessary). Some $10 used brake levers (the ones you have are fine). A $30 used saddle (yours looks fine). Added fenders, a $10 used sidewall generator and $10 used lights, and a nice rack. $20 of new brake pads and $10 of cables. And $50 for new tires, with reflective sidewalls, as wide as would fit. The bike rides very nicely, comfortable, stable. Not speedy or light but a very good around town bike. Other than the fenders and rack (which were both splurges, but can be moved to other bikes later), I probably spent about $200 but didn't need to spend that much.

You can probably spend <$50 on tires, brake pads (if needed), and cables (if needed) and have a solid around town bike. Your bike probably needs less than mine did, since it runs okay already. In fact, it looks like everything that it makes sense to upgrade has already been done, and you may need to do very little. Find a local bike coop with loaner tools and bins of used parts. Don't buy anything new except pads, cables, tires, chain.



You'll learn a lot about bikes, especially about old French bikes. You'll avoid dealing with the odd French dimensions if you keep the original parts.
