My Mystery Peugeot

Hi All,
I'm having trouble determining the exact model my of Peugeot. I've searched the forum and online. I bought it several years ago and was told that it is a mid-80s model, yet haven't seen a Peugeot that has the same decals or components as mine.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!

It was made in Canada.

I know nothing about Canadian Peugeots. I've even seen one in person.

That one appears to be internally lugged and it has the dreaded Maillard Helicomatic rear hub. (I have no personal experience with those, either.)

I like what I can see of the engraving on the bars.

Made in Canada?!? No way! Thanks!

I like the engraving on the bars as well...it's a great bike. I didn't know there was difference between French and Canadian (Quebec I assume) Peugeots other than where they were made. Something that does confuse me though are the decals. Other mid-80s Peugeots have the orange to red stripes diagonally across the seat and top tubes, while this one is plain black. :/

I don't remember when Peugeot stopped exporting road bikes to the US, but this may have been made during that period, so it might have been a Canadian market bike.

Internally brazed frame, using either Carbolite, but most likely the later HLE Peugeot tubing.
It's a mix of base level and close to mid mid level components on the bike, so I'd say it an upper entry level bike (maybe one or two steps up from the very base model) from Peugeot Canadien. It's certainly not junk, and should ride really nicely as most Peugeots of this construction and era do as long as you keep it tuned up and clean.
That bike should easily last another couple of decades, as long as you keep it clean and corrosion free (park it regularly inside the garage, at least.). Look into the posted Peugeot catalogue files in the internet (there must be a link here in BF) and you should be able to match up the colors and components to a certain model bike easily.
BTW, the original Sach RD (Rival?) was replaced with that shimano

Good luck with the mid 80's Peugeot!

Thank you all for the replies and the detailed information Chombi!

Unfortunately, the previous owner did not clean the top tube after his rides and there is some corrosion. The bike was filthy and the drivetrain was caked in what looked like years of built up grease and road grime when I bought it. What you're seeing in the photos is the bike after I cleaned it and put on new tape. It does ride very steady and smooth compared to my modern road bike, too bad it doesn't fit me as well though, so it doesn't get out of the basement much. :/

Thanks again for all the info, it really helps a lot.

Cheers,
Mike

I've got a Canadian made Peugeot also, and there's not much info about them on the internet. Mine has a lugged frame and was made by Procycle, and also lacks the multi color bands. It does have a cool plastic head badge.

In the US catalog internally brazed frames were P6/8/10 models. Not sure about Canada.

Good luck, nice old Peugeot.
