Peugeot bike identification

Hi everyone.
Does anybody know if there was any peugeot bike from late 70s or early 80s, equipped from the factory with derailleurs Shimano Altus and chrome fork Carraro?
Thanks for your time.

A definite “no” to the Altus derailleur. And I doubt Peugeot would have used that fork.

No a late 70's early 80's stock Peugeot would have Simplex or Peugeot branded DR's and I don't know of any that had a full chrome Fork.

Derailleurs and forks are both fairly common replacement items, so they may not be OEM. Also, I'm seeing what appears to be a generator tab of the left seat stay. This feature was rarely seen in the USA market after the UE series was discontinued circa 1977, so it may be a European model, if it is a Peugeot. If you own the bicycle, the serial number may tell us the manufacturer and year. That could give us a good start on identifying the model, though it appears to have stamped dropouts which would indicate an entry level model. Pic assist...

It is definitely a European model. However i donít own the bike, so i donít have the serial number. It is sold in a store, and the seller claims itís a 1978 built, vintage and rare.

Looks to be a early 80's AE-8 with some none original parts technically vintage but not rare or valuable. Should make decent basic rider but really on worth 100 euros and $125 or so US if e verything worksgood.

Seller is wrong, its not rare. Very common and missing most of its original parts. Nothing special. Let him sell it to someone else.

BTW, sellers think "rare" means valuable. Often bikes are rare because they were a flop in the marketplace, so not many was sold. Few people are seeking those flops.
