I just picked these up at a garage sale and I am not sure of anything other than they will have goofy french sizing. Any and all input will be appreciated. I will try and group pics of each bike together.

Bike #1.



Bike #2

Bike #1 is a low end Peugeot from the 1970's. Steel cottered crank, safety lever brakes, etc. Seems to be missing some decals. Shifters are not original.

Bike #2 is also a low end Peugeot from the 1970's. Has most or all of its original parts and decals. UO-8 model or similar.

Both bikes are Peugeot UO8 models, the first being a bit newer than the second. These were, more or less, entry level offerings from Peugeot but the ride quality is exceptional, believe it or not.

Neither bike is particularly valuable but either/both will be fun to build up and, as mentioned, fun to ride. Good luck with the bikes. If you need anything, in the way of original components, send me an email. I have everything you could need.

First bike is older than the second, probably late sixties with some parts added later like the suicide levers. Check the downtube font and triangular "tube special allegre " sticker on the seat tube. Second bike is mid to late seventies post 1975.

The first bike appears to have bent chainstays, check that before performing any work to get it rideable.

I also agree that the first one is the older.

Thanks for all the input guys.......I am new to French bikes.

I had not noticed that, I will have to look at it when I get a chance. The first bike actually looks like it was repainted (poor taping job around the decals). It may just get used for parts if they are low end offerings. None the less they will be fun to get going again. Glad I didn't pay much for them, $5 each, so even if it is just a fun project with no value it is worth the money to have some fun.

If you need anything, in the way of original components, send me an email. I have everything you could need
I will probably take you up on that offer once I dig into them. My son is chomping at the bit to get going on them but I have some other things that need to get worked on first.

Don't know what those shifters are.

The bike has - I believe - a braze on for the right shifter (rear dérailleur) but none for the left (front derailleur), because Peugeot wanted to be able to use the frame for models with only a rear dérailleur (1x5). It originally had a clamp on band with a mount for the left shifter and a hole where the right braze on fit through. These are pretty common if you have a bike shop that salvages old bike stuff.

Cool, thanks for the info. I have been planning a "salvage trip" to the Twin Cities, one more thing to add to the list.
