Peugeot id help please

I picked this up at a pawn shop a couple of weeks ago, and finally have my post count up enough to post pics to maybe figure out what I've got. 5 cogs on the rear, triple chainring, serial on bottom looks to be 'Y606 15165 with an upside down '4' scrawled in the middle. And what looks like possible a generator driven by the chainring, with wires running through the tubes (no lights though) Chrome forks, paint is original with some dings and scratches. Shimano Sora front derailleur. Seat is not original obviously, and pretty shabby -also obviously. :-)

Thanks!!

thats an unusual one for sure with the canti brakes .
mid 1980s going by the decals .

Is that a paper sticker I spy under the dynamo clamp on the non drive side chain stay.
If it is it will have model info on it .

Not something you see every day. The generator, when engaged, should contact the rear tire.

Judging from the 501 tubing, canti brakes and long wheelbase, a mid level touring/light touring model. Most likely an 84 or 85 model.
Should make for a solid, stable, reliable, comfortable mile muncher ride.

Nothing in the brochures matches up exactly, closest is the '86 PH501 (Jamaica Blue), except a lot of the bits on the bike don't match the brochure specs - cantilever brakes and triple chainring kinda stand out as different.

welcome to the wonderful world of Peugeot models etc !
A wonderfully confusing and inexact part of the bicycle universe .

Bet there is a model number on that paper tag !

Please do so ; I have a similar machine but no sticker, and mine has no match in any catalogue that I've seen online.

Yours looks like an 1985 by decals.

The serial number indicates June 1986 frame manufacture. That's early enough that it should be a 1986 model. It's an excellent good match for the French market, 1986 Peugeot PXR80, with the exceptions of missing mudguards and racks.

That is a terrific find. I picked up a 1980s Peugeot with a triple chainring and canti brakes (which are said to be rare in any form), but not as nice as yours--lesser crank, and Carbolite tubes. Had trouble finding anything about it but finally located dead-on pictures in a French (not US) catalog. Mine still had the paper tag, under a kick-stand, and turned out to be a PX80: Posted pics of mine here: 1985 Peugeot PX80

I took off the dynamo to try and get a better look at the paper tag, and the label does indicate PXR 80, the 'P' was pretty much destroyed by the dynamo clamp, but the rest is mostly readable, even if stained, I took a photo of the label, and tweaked contrast in Paintshop Pro to increase legibility. Full text on the label is:

PXR80 60
438 3161 that may be 498 3161 (possibly a factory paint code?) Though i think my best bet for touch up paint is to hit a model shop and try and see if I can find a decent match there. It does look like the color of my old Camaro

From what I can tell, using Google to translate the French catalog, this was sold as a touring bike, distance from center of crank to top of seat tube measure 23.5", which would make it 60 cm, consistent with the catalog description and with the label.

I Think I got luckier than I expected! That dynamo seems to be a bit of an odd bird -- I may try cleaning it up and seeing if it's workable. I kinda like the idea of being battery free but I will want to find fenders at least and then maybe think about lighting.

I believe I just picked up the same model, PXR80, on ebay. I was initially thrown off by the franken-Shimano drivetrain: 600 Tri-color rear derailleur, 105 front derailleur, 105 Golden Arrow crankset. Also the Shimano cantis and what appear to be newer Shimano bar-end shifters.

After looking at all the Peugeot USA catalogs for the 1980s and not finding a match, I turned to the French catalogs, and found a match (sans components) in the 1988 catalog, with the PXR80. The price was more than I wanted to pay, but I was able to make an offer, and it was accepted! I haven't taken delivery of it yet (UPS says Tuesday, May 4), but I'm excited to receive it and verify the identity.

Honestly, I'm happy with the Shimano drivetrain, as long as the operation is smooth and trouble-free. Also the bar-ends, what appear to be Tektro levers, and Shimano cantis. This will be my primary all-road bike, so I would have probably swapped out the original French drivetrain, anyway. The saddle, stem, and peddles will be swapped out.
