Unknown Peugeot

Any idea of the model and year of this Peugeot?
Maybe a value after a tune-up and cleaning?
thanks, Marius

Looks to be an early 80's based on the Carbolilte frame with Platsic headbadge with the wieman center pull brakes. Since this one has slightly nicer wheels and crank with somewhat sporty geometry I'm thinking it's a PA-10. The bike looks to be in good enough shape that the mode/yeearl sticker is likely intact flip it over it should be on the bottom of one of the rear chain stays or BB. As for value I would say $250 nicely fixed up ready to ride and about $150 as presented.

Really nice Pug in great condition. The cotterless crank and what look to be alloy rims are a plus but the frame does look to be carbo lite given the stamped steel drop outs. I could sell that bike locally for $150 fixed up; it's worth $75-$100 locally as it sits. In a different market, I could see it going for more as it is a real survivor.

I think it might be a touch earlier than early 80's. The checkerboard seat tube decals make me think more '77 - '79. I agree with zukahn1 about a PA10 or similar, good call.

I looked in the pre 80's catalogs, too.
maybe it is a UO10? 77, 78 something like that. Almost the same including the saddle Norex 39.
No sticker with the model.

The rims appear to be be aluminum, which would make it a circa 1978 UO10. Looks like the fork may be bent.

I was thinking UO 10 as well with the alloy rims and cotterless crank. I like all the UO series bikes but I have soft spot for the UO 10 since that was the first bike I toured long distance on.

Hmm, it can be bent, I don't go in the garage to check it, too cold.
But, it can be made straight in a bike shop, right?
It looks like the picture from the '78 catalog, including the reflectors.

The "Aztec" cutouts on the head tube lugs are a hallmark of UO-series bikes. Decals say late '70s. Alloy crankset points toward the UO-10.

Both the UO9 & UO10 used the Stronglight TS cotterless crankset. The UO9 was a UO8 with the crankset upgrade and slightly better derailleurs. The UO10 took things one step further with upgrades to aluminum rims, an aluminum handlebar, slightly better hubs and down tube versus stem shifters. Later versions also rec'd an alloy seat post.

Hi-tensile forks are very easy to straighten A shop with the proper tools can do very quickly but it's not beyond the home mechanic. It just takes more time. The only time I won't straighten a steel fork is when there is an obvious crease in the metal.

If it has Carbolite tubing, that's straight-gauge, which would mean it's NOT one of the "P" series bikes. That reduces it's value by at least 50%.

That's not a Carbolite tubing decal. It's the Cadre Allege (light frame) decal, which was a predecessor. to Carbolite.

It is a difference between Carbolite and Cadre Allege, like quality or just another name?

Whether a Peugeot is wearing a "Carbolite 103" decal or a "cadre allege" decal, it's built with straight gauge high-tensile steel tubing. "Carbolite 103" was just a marketing name made up because potential buyers may be more impressed to hear that a bike is built with Peugeot's exclusive Carbolite 103 tubing than to hear it's built with the same gaspipe tubing as other entry-level bikes.

Would you trade the Peugeot as is for this Trek, as is?

Yes the Trek is a much nicer bike with a better frame and components in what looks to b much nicer shape. I would be really surprised some one is willing to make this trade. So I would be sure and check out the Trek to make sure there are no major unseen issues.

Personally, I'd trade the Peugeot for the Trek, assuming it fits.

Reynolds 501 is butted chromoly tubing. It doesn't have the cachet of the higher-end Reynolds 531, but it's still decent stuff. Workmanship on classic Treks is very good. The Trek has an integral dereailleur hanger, while the Peugeot requires a claw.

Both bikes looks like 62 cm, not my size. So either of them will be for sale.
