I'm thinking UO8, but the top tube cable guides are throwing me off. That and the cantilevered brakes, aluminum cranks, etc...

If the canti brakes are original, it might give a clue to what it is.....
The crankset is most likely a later upgrade.....

I'd agree with the UO-8 guess. Looks like everything is wrong with it, frame-wise. The TT cable guides were removed. The chainstay cable stop braze-on was removed and replaced with a clamp-on one. The shifter boss was removed, and you can see how far forward the clamp-on shifters are placed. Also, the seat tube decal doesn't coincide with the down-tube decal, since the seat-tube decal is later 70's and the downtube decal is early-mid 70's. Note that on the fork, the chrome-to-paint changeover is much higher than stock, which forced the person who repainted it to place the fork decal right up against the fork crown points. Yeah, and as noted already, the presence of the cantilevers.

So, it's a stripped frame that someone stripped all the braze-ons from, then re-decal'd it with whatever they could obtain. Yeah, and as noted already, the presence of the cantilevers.

The bicycle is a Frankenbike mix of mostly Japanese parts. The down tube shift evers are SunTour PDL (Power Shifters). The crankset appears to a Sugino Mighty Compe.The rear derailleur is a 1st generation Shimano 600 or 500. The brake levers look like Dia-Compe/Weinmann. In short, there aren't any components to aid in identification of the bicycle model.

Peugeot did offer "randonneur" models with cantilever brakes into the boom era, though they were rarely imported into North America. It is somewhat reminiscent of a PX50. So, it's not necessarily an owner modified frame, though I wouldn't rule out that possibility.

In my mind, the frame and fork set is worth a hundred dollars. True, the bike is a mismatch of componentry, but the frame/fork set looks to be pretty original. I would pay a $100 for that bike and wish I had the opportunity to do so. It is even my size...

I mean, in addition to the frame/fork, the frankenstein components aren't bad either... and it has aluminum rims. Maybe I should just pick it up.

I was lucky enough to find this old Mercier "Gentleman" (my nick name for the bike) several years ago. French, early seventies and featuring canti brakes. Probably the most unusual French bike to come my way and I do like unusual...

As mentioned, I was dumb enough to sell the bike but, happy to say that the new owner did a pretty nice job of street restoring it...

Crankset alone is worth $75 to $100.
