+1, it appears to be a circa 1983 UO14 converted to bar end shift levers. Unlike the lightweight hi-tensile steel used in the other UO-series models, the UO14 used double butted carbon-manganese steel. Serial number?

I dunno, but the black and chrome plastic head tube lion was an 82 item......
My 1982 PH10S had it.

I found aní82 date code on the Maillard front hub. Still looking this over. I may do a build with it using lighter parts. The Stronglight crankset is a nifty 50/38. Canít find a date on the nice Lyotard pedals.

Fork tube is Tange 2K made in Japan (nothing strange about that ). I may restore, clean up this frame and build to my specs. Pretty sure with my parts bin I can preserve era and bring weight into the low 22lb range, which for me is a good rider. This is the only French bike I have presently and first Peugeot.

I committed a typographical error in my previous post. 1984 should have been 1983 - now corrected. While that's not the actual frame serial number, it still indicates the bicycle is from 1983. That actual frame serial number will start with a B or Y. A 1983 date code would not be unusual on a 1983 model. Plus, it has the Mangalite tubing decal indicative of a UO14, which was only catalogued in 1983.

It might be tough getting this at 22 lbs given the frame tubing and rims. It's a fine bike but not designed to be a lightweight.

Is that one of those Simplex rear derailleurs with a Peugeot brand? Probably a decent working derailleur and no Delrin. Looks like the spokes in the rear may need some attention.

Nice looking frame. That stem is sure cranked down, and RUSTY.

Yes the RD has the Simplex stampings. I wont be using that DR, nor too worried about the spokes. I had some practice over the winter. This one had wood rims.

Well, it's not a terrible bicycle and looks worthy of being repaired and ridden. I'd guess that being 82 or 83 that it might not have the French standard dimensions on things.

Problem with replacing that rear derailleur is that the bike appears to have decent dropouts with, probably, a Simplex derailleur hanger which, if it's like the one on my Peugeot PR10, is unthreaded and without a pivot stop. The hole can be tapped and some people suggest filing the dropout to fashion a pivot stop. You might consider giving the old Simplex derailleur a try. They didn't shift bad, in my experience.

edit: Simplex derailleurs are held onto the hanger with a hex head screw on the back. You probably already know that, but thought it was worth mentioning.

Simplex dropouts with threaded hanger w/stop. A first gen Cyclone would be a decent choice as well.

That's good and the Cyclone is a better mech than the Simplex. Guess that the Simplex stuff changed from the mid 70s to the 80s.

I have the old plastic simplex derailleurs that were prone to cracking but I just canít seem to assign them for use. Never was a fan.

"Modern" simplex drop outs are tapped and have a stop so you can run a simplex RD or pretty much anything else.

You're going to want one of these from your local homebrew supply for the "aero" headset lock nut.

Here is the UO-14 on a shakedown cruise last night. There was some mention of overall weight. It weighs 23.15 (digital) with the terrible Bontrager B Sport 25’s. With a decent set of Michelins it will be in the 22# range similar to my old 85 Trek 460. It fits and rides just perfectly. Surprised me being a lower level bike than I’m used to.
Components:
-Suntour bar end shifters
-Suntour Cyclone RD (1st gen)
-Suntour Superbe Brakes (levers and calipers)
Stronglight Crankset

I didn't like the look of the rear wheel in the frame. maybe it was just the camera angle
or just a dishing/truing thing. but it wouldn't hurt to do the string trick to check your
stays alignment

They really did, and they kept improving their frames going into the 80's from what I've ridden.

Whether it's my 1979 U09 Super Sport (first year of Carbolite) or my 1984 PH501 (Reynolds 501 tubes, Carbolite fork), these lesser-tier models give a great ride out on the road at low weight levels for their price points.
Both of these bikes I bought just to clean up and flip, but after riding them, their ride and their style both grew on me.
