Green Peugeot/ID?

Hello,
There's someone in my neighbourhood selling this beautiful green peugeot. I'm still waiting for a response about componentry and a price but I was wondering if anyone can ID this bike. Thanks in advance!

Quite possibly a 1973 UO8. The model was a mainstay for many years. Not a hi-level racer but very popular, still has a following. "Yours" is clean, a very cool bike. I've seen them go quite low in price and I've seen certain individuals sell for one fifty. The latter of which is well worth it if it appeals to you and rolls, shifts and all else is well.
That looks like a good one. My size too, close to. Most I've seen lately are too tall.

If you do buy the bike.....does this bike have the little hole above the top air pump prong holder. I think that hole is oil your fork. Not sure what kind of oil you should use tho.

The guy was looking for $120 for it but it's not in my size and I was looking more to flip it so I have decided not to follow up. Thanks again for the info though. I looked up some old Peugeot catalogs and it definitely is an AO-8. Cheers
