Identify vintage Peugeot

Hey guys. I recently acquired this Peugeot frameset and am in the process of trying to identify it so that I know what parts I need. From the headbadge I've deducted that it should've been made somewhere between 77-80 but I'm not sure. The badge on the bottom bracket seems to have been removed and the number on the dropout is partially painted over so I can't see all the numbers but I think it says something like B7 or 87 and then 029. Any help is much appreciated. If this is the wrong place for these types of questions I apologize.

I snapped some pictures but I can't link the url here and it won't let me attach the files.

We will need some pics too tell much of anything but based on the numbers it is likely lower end late's 70's Canadian built Peugeot. If you post the full http url of the photo someone should be able to get it posted and give you some more info

It says I need 10 posts before I can send urls or pm somebody. It's an imgur album link /a/f6drz. The bottom bracket doesn't appear to be a cottered one rather it's a normal square one. How can I find out if it's swiss, french, italian or english and what cranks I can fit?

It is rather badly bent, It's one of low end ones, but with the rack mount not a AO8. I'd get some wheels and a seat on it and roll around on it before spending anything on it. I would be quite surprised if it rolled straight and the fork does not bind.

Good Luck!

Thanks for the reply! What part do you mean is bent? Looking at it right now it looks straight as can be :O. It rests unevenly on the bottom bracket cup flange I think

It may be the perspective of the picture, but it looks like the fork blades are bent backward a bit. If there is some bending and it's just the fork blades, it shouldn't be too difficult or expensive to coax them back into shape. You'll want to check the frame for damage as well because forks bent backward often indicate a front-end collision. A tell-tale sign of a bent frame is bulging or buckling of the underside of the top tube and/or down tube near the front of the bike.

Here's hoping there's no bending! Then we can move on to the business of ID'ing, building, and riding. The "Aztec" cutouts on the head tube lugs are hallmarks of the A/U series like the ubiquitous UO-8. But UO-8's don't have generator tabs on the seat stay, so this bike is more like a UE-8. The pump pegs are in the wrong place, though, so I'm going to guess late '70s PX-8. Those had Aztec lugs, generator tab, square taper cranks, and pump pegs either on the seat tube or top tube. The raised head badge also looks late '70s.

Here's a PX-8 from Peugeot's 1978 German catalog for comparison:

Looks to be something in the A8E serie, there are several variations. Also different version made for varying markets. A domestic french bicycle will have some small differences from a north american one for example.

If you search the various online catalogues look for A8E in/near the time bracket you mention. In one dutch online catalogue this model is described as P8E.

Looks like either the fork blades ae bent back at the fork steerer tube is bent where it goes into the fork crown. May be perspective.
