The bike in question does appear to be a UO-8. This bike would have a French bb .

The subject bicycle appears to be a mid-1970s P10, which was the entry level racing model. Not be confused with the higher levels PA10, PR10 or PX10.

AO8, step down from UO8, due to no fork chrome socks. DT pump pegs, stamped dropouts, cottered crankset, claw RD hanger, etc. Wheels look like they were upgraded. Closeup of headtube lugs would be most helpful, look kind of Aztec style, hard to tell. Still has original pump which is nice (most were lost or broken long ago, mine lasted one year on my 1974).

Note, AO8 and UO8 names are US centric. Peugeot had other names in other regions.

I'm pretty sure this is not an A08. Check out the short chainstays and short fork rake. It appears to be the entry level racing bicycle equivalent, the P10.

I reviewed but I doesn't find. I think it is modified so it likes AO8. But lugs don't same AO8.

I'm attaching 1974 catalog scans for the A08 and P10. Please note:

1. Chainstay length: Despite using larger 27" wheels the A08's longer chainstays result in a more clearance behind the seat tube.

2. Fork rake: The A08 has much fork rake, indicated by a more pronounced curve at the bottom of the fork. This also makes the front wheel sit slightly further away from the down tube.

3, Head lugs: The P10, being a racing model does not use the Aztec style lugs of the A08 and are painted in a black.

4. Brake calipers: The P10 is spec'd with Altenburger Syncron. The P10 was the only non-Mafac equipped Peugeot during this era, outside of the folders.

5. Decals: Being a racing model, the P10 does not have the chevrons on the fork and tube, like the A08 and other recreational touring models.

6. Rear dropouts: notice how the P10 does have stamped dropouts with a claw hanger unlike other racing models.

7. Fork painting: The P10 has a fully painted paint, unlike other racing models of the era.

While there are similarities betrween the A08 and P10 (stamped dropouts, fully painted fork and most components) there are differences and the subject bicycle has these (short chainstays, short fork rake, non-Aztec lugs, Altenburger brakes and lack of fork and top tube chevrons). About the only thing that is not a perfect match are the Mafac brake levers,sadle, post and the wheels, all of which are easily replaced and the latter being a very common replacement due to the OEM tubular wheelset. However, the current wheels do appear to be 700C which would be further evidence of a P10.

The bicycle has the newer style downtube logo but still has the brazed on pump pegs, so it is probably a circa 1975 P10.

Edit: To date, nobody has determined a way to idnetify the model or year from 1970s, Peugeot serial numbers.
