Peugeot Identification

I'm assuming the answer is "low end," but I just wanted to ensure a reasonable opportunity didn't slip through my grasp. The cottered cranks are likely telling me everything. But...any quick toss outs for identification before the auction ends? (It's the middle listing, lot 303.) Thanks!

Yes, it's a low end model, maybe a UO8.
You can tell from the stamped steel rear dropouts and the absence of chrome on the rear frame triangle......

Hailstorm, that is a randonneur or touring model from around 1970 and given the black head lugs would be a P-something model. It was made with Peugeot’s “inoxydable” or “Cadre Allege” tubing, which is not high end but offers a very nice ride. I see that the Simplex dérailleurs have been swapped out for Suntour, so the only things that needs to be replaced to make a very nice bike are those steel rims. IMO of course.

Didn't they just have the black highlites around the lugs on only the "10's" (PA-10, PX-10, PR-10, etc....????)

If it goes for $5 would be very nice. Terrible photos (for me at least) but if that leather seat could be saved it would be worth the $5 alone.

The bike is an early to mid seventies Peugeot UE18, the touring version of the UO8...


The Peugeot UO8 and the UE18 were, more or less, entry level offerings (not quite bottom of the line) but the ride quality offered is exceptionally good for such a quality level. To that add that the livery screams vintage. For five bucks, you can't go too far wrong. However...

There are issues with owning and refurbishing or restoring older French bicycles. Have a look and don't get too discouraged - most of the French related issues are easy to resolve, these days.

Nope. To be sure the P-labeled Cadre Allege models were not common in the US but they do exist. I see them fairly frequently in Europe.

The black lugs mean that it is not a U model, but one with a P label. To be sure they would use the same basic frame, but the P bikes were set up for randonneur and touring. For example, here is a P 8 E model from 1971:

Looks like a PX8 variant.

Thanks! I am always happy to learn something new and useful in my vintage bicycle interests. I am also lucky enough to have owned a couple of other P Peugeots and all have the black lugs...

1972 PE41...



19?? PX10...


And my present PX10...

Thanks, all. I didn't think I was going to get lucky on a PX10, but at $5 or $6, why not check. Thanks again!

UE-8. UE-18 was the mixte version, just like the UO-8 and UO-18 pair. Very welcome rear derailleur upgrade to SunTour, a common fix back in the day.
