Neat bike. I think what you have is a later version of the UE18, a lower end mixte touring bike. Some of the details (the decals on the headlugs, cotterless crank) and highlights look like the UO10s I have seen. The UO10 is an upgraded UO8; I'm not sure what the mixte version would be (Uo18 is the mixte version of the UO8). The decals place it in the late seventies/very early eighties (probably 79-81). The identification as a PR65 may be correct, but Peugeot made touring bikes out of some of their lower end models by adding fenders and a light (the UE8 was the touring version of the UO8, for example). Are there any markings as to frame tubing? The PR65 had Reynolds 531. Maker's mark on the crank? The PR65 had a stronglight crank as shown in the dutch catalog, the UO10s also had stronglight, badged as Peugeot.

Please note: I may have messed up designations in my prior post. The UE 8 may be the mixte version of the UO 8, and the UO 18 the touring version. It's early in the morning, and honest to god, my head is spinning, and I can't recall all those darn Peugeot designations no matter how hard I try. On the other hand, I may not have mixed the designations. I just can't recall correct-like. Someone will be along to fill us in.

Your bike has an SR steering stem, which should have a date of manufacture stamped on it.

Bingo! 1981 there are almost no photos on the web of the mixte bikes (mixte is a name of a model isn't it...) and for example UO10 is... still learning

Mixte is the style of frame. They are a part of the
crossframe style of building (of which there are over
a hundred variations).
The U010 is the model number.

Uo10 probably isn't the exact model number. The UO10 was a standard road bike. Peugeot used slightly different designations for mixte models (hence my above confusion, I can't offhand recall the exact designation). Touring models also had a slightly different designation. It looks very UO10ish to me, based on what little I know. The stem, if SR, may be a replacement, so dating may not be exact. Most Peugeots from this period had Atax stems stock.

I think it may be a PA65 Ranndonneur. The pic in my literature matches your model except for a drop bar versus the flat bar, a parallelogram Simplex front derailleur versus the rod type Simplex front derailleur and sapphire blue paint versus white white.

The PA65 would have a hi-tensile frame versus the Reynolds 531 on the PR65. The PA65 has the stainless steel fenders, steel rack and dynamo lighting system. The rims are steel. Based on the pics it appears to have the same Peugeot branded crankset, pedals, Weinmann center-pull brakes, Simplex rear derailleur and stem shifters. Same graphics too.
