Question about Peugeot UO14 repair

Hi y'all

I've got an '83 Peugeot UO 14 that is currently not ridable. One of the small cogs in the rear derailleur has broken into two pieces. Is it possible for me to find and replace that part or do I need to look for a new RD?

Specs on my bike here.

Thanks

I should have said, "... or do I need to look for a replacement RD?"

What is your RD? Simplex?

Replacement pulleys are available, and other brands may work if you have simplex. I think Suntour derailler pulleys will work in Simplex, while Shimano derailler pulleys will work in most older campy. Then there are "aftermarket" brands like bullseye, which may or may not be compatible. (ps the Simplex SX410GT derailler spec'd for that bike is a pretty good one, so it would be worth it to replace that pulley wheel, which is a simple matter once you have a replacement pulley in hand).

+1 Suntour pulleys are a perfect match for Simplex pulleys and will last longer than the Simplex due to the different plastic used.
