An old bike identification

Hi there!

I've an old bike, I assume it's an old peugeot. It's probably was coloured(i can't find any numbers) and parts could be changed. But if anyone can help me with identification - it'll be great! If you need more photo's - do not hesitate to ask.
Thanks in advance!

No clue on the brand. Does it have any serial number? Look under the bottom bracket (crank housing), on the dropouts, on the head tube, even on the chain stays.

The rear dropouts are stamped (not forged), which means it's a middle to low-end frame. That doesn't mean it isn't a good bike, just that it's not a prestige/collectible model.

Another way to check it is indeed French: measure the key dimensions, and reference Sheldon's article on French bikes.

Probably not a Pug. Too many inconsistencies in the frame design. Google Peugeot Mixte and compare to pics.

Cute bike though and while not high-end, cleaned and lubed would make for a decent grocery getter or gravel grinder for sure. That frame style is becoming more and more popular. Just go to Rivebike.com to see their Cheviot model.

definitely not peugeot. definitely european. note crown, plate style bridges and pump pegs. crown, hs locknut, lockwasher and adjustable race are french which tends to imply a french build. difficult to know what fraction of fittings are original to the cycle. could be something like a ficelle. only a few mfrs did mixtes where the laterals attach to the seat stays.
