Peugeot - Record du Monde

What can you tell me about this bike?

Peugeot - Record du Monde

White, lugs outlined in black.

Quality, purpose (ie: road, touring etc.)


32" floor to top tube.

I'm 5'10", may this be a good size for me ?

Is $50 a good, ok, or too much price

Thanks

I forgot to write down, but the rear has a "different" looking derailer. Kind of square and boxy.

I was afraid I'd hear that first... Darn - no camera with me.

Has downtube pump holder, I remember that much from just looking at it.

... oh and brakes said "made in England"

"Record du Monde" is on nearly every Peugeot made during a certain period, from the lowly ao8 to the victorious PX10.

Is there any chroming on the frame?

Is there a sticker on the seat tube reading "tube special peugeot" or "inoxyadable"?

Are the rims steel or alloy?

Is the crank cottered or cotterless?

Does it have an integral derailleur holder or is it a mount?

$50, depending on condition, could be an okay buy or a steal. Or, if it's missing some key parts, a serious pass.

Borrowed a cam. Got same (really bad) pics.

Good thing about taking pics, you notice stuff, like the giant dent in the bent downtube. (see last pic)

Hmm?

Bent down tube?

Run. Away. Fast.

The top tube brake cable routing is wrong for that model. There must be a broken stop.

It's an early seventies UE-8.

No it doesn't and why would you want to pay $50 for a bent low end Peugeot?

Ooohhh....OUCH!!.....I see that bent downtube on your last pic....looks like something got jammed hardbetween the wheel and the tube.
The bike's not worth enough to save IMO, because that damage is pretty bad. The cost to straighten things up could be much over the value of the whole bike.
Totalled = pass

The 'Aztec' style heads were from 50's through the late 70's. If you still have the $50 you can Paypal it to me. I'm not going to give you anything for the $50.

Not pre 1970s. My 1975 UO8 had identical lug work.

Add a bent downtube, and it is pure junk. No redeeming qualities whatsoever.

BigBossMan has a special tool he uses to straighten French frames - running them over with a Suburban

All jokes aside, UE-8 fenders and the rear rack might bring $50 on the bay.

It'd more fun to take my big-ass tubing cutter to it, and I wouldn't risk damaging a quality GM product in the bargain.

It might have a French BB in it though, and if you pair that with the fenders you might get your $50 out of it.
