1985 peugeot Help

I recently salvaged an mid 80's peugeot from a dumpster, it has a straight frame that looks good and is a carblite 103, but the wheels are bent and the chain, derailuer and seat are trashed.
I would like to know what modern components ( wheels, cassets,..... ) would fit a 1985-6 p8 peugeot?

it has two serial #'s y5c4 - 12514 & p8 - usb057x

More or less everything will fit. Fitting a cassette is all relative to how many speeds you'd like. Odds are you'll need to spread the rear triangle to accomidate the wider hub (maybe not). Aside from that just about everything modern will work.
