Peugeot AO8. 1970s. Entry level bike, beware of death stem. Also, those plastic derailleurs do not age well. The clamp on the FD in particular tends to crack. Out of the 30 + I have seen in the last ten years, 100% of the FDs had cracks in the clamp area, some took a close look to see it.

As is less than a hundred. Like 50-60. A little over 100 if cleaned, tuned and ready to go.

Looks to be model AE8. 1972 was the first year they were fitted with the chrome NERVAR chainguard we see on this example.

Here is a catalogue page -

Yep, AE or AO-8 from the late 70s. They were essentially the same bike, except for the rack and fenders on the AE model. They are not worth much but with good aluminum wheels they are a pleasant bike to ride. I have a mid-70s AO-8 that is a delight.

The seat needs to be lowered and the seat clamp hardware turned around (because it is backwards. The clamp bolt goes to the back of the bike). Its a small bike but the handlebars need to be lowered.

Depending on location, and whether or not the black plastic derailleur bodies have broken, $50 to $150 Canadian....

Binky.

The mounting bosses on the seat stays for fitment of the rear rack mean it cannot be an A08 as that model does not have them and the AE8 does.
