Peugeot UO10

Hi, I want to know if what I believe is a 1977 Peugeot UO10 is worth a restoration, or should I just do a maintenance, and use it as an everyday bike.

The rear derailleur is a Shimano SIS

I can't send pictures until I get to 10 posts

Thanks

Lots of fans of Pugs on this forum. Make some comments on various threads to get to 10 posts and put up some pictures and folks can give you an informed opinion. UO10 was a bit of a step up from the ubiquitous UO8 metal simplex rather than plastic bodied so your Shimano is probably a replacements but I am sure it does the job. I would recommend you make sure it brakes and shifts, lube the chain make sure the tires are safe and then ride it, allot, before you make any changes i.e. make sure it fits, you like the ride, discover what you might want to change......

I bought a Peugeot UO10 brand new in 1978. It had a high-tensile steel frame (lower quality than the Japanese chromoly that would take over the market in the 1980s). Components were all French with friction shifters, so your SIS system is clearly after-market. Threading was all French too, so beware of that if you do any upgrades. Total weight was around 28 pounds, which was lighter and more sporty than the Schwinns and Huffys of that day. Price was around $200 back in 1978. These were popular with recreational and commuter bicyclists back then. If you wanted to restore an old Peugeot, I would look for a higher-end racing bike with a higher-quality frame made from brand name steel (with a Columbus or Reynolds sticker).

The UO 10 is a fine bike and it has better parts than the UO 8 but more or less the same frame. The biggest improvements were the crank (forged cotterless crank), derailleurs, and wheels (alloy rims). It is well worth fixing up and riding.

I agree. I sold my beloved U08 a couple of months back after over 10K miles on it. It was the perfect blank canvass to make whatever modifications and changes that I liked.

Neither. Do a full rebuild on it, overhauling all componentry, and build it up however it suits you. The general consensus around here is to use period-correct parts and new consumables.

Thank you for the pictures, I will try to get mine up to the condition that your bike is. Do you know where can I get a Simplex derailleur? Do You agree that my bike es a 1977 UO10?

Thanks
