ID My Buddy's Basement Peugeot

So my buddy finally (after many years) brought his Peugeot to me today so I can spiff it up for him. Here is the thread from several years ago with the info so I wont repeat it:

https://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...uddy-s-Peugeot

And here are the pics (apologies for poor resolution):







What surprised me was seeing the Maillard 700c "team issue" hubs and Weinmann alloy 700c wheels. The brakes are mafac centerpulls and mafac levers. The shifter cables are routed through a strange plastic guide arrangement that says (to me), "cheap" as do the reflectors and dork disc. Yet, there is the small clustered freewheel that I havent yet counted the cog teeth. The crank arms are Stronglite.

Any good guesses? It has the look of a late 70's bike.

thanx!

A good one. I see a Reynolds 531 decal. I see forged Simplex d/o's.
Don't know the specific model, but certainly in the higher-end of the time.
Great bike.

Hmmmm..........another "Troglodyte" Peugeot, nicely preserved in the cool dark confines of an American full basement.
If it has Reynolds 531 tubing, then it is not an entry level bike (UO8...etc.). The nice chromed forged Simplex rear DOs seem to indicate that it is a upper mid to high model Peugeot. An entry level Peugeot of that time would most likely have had stamped steel DOs

Thanx, Chombi. Yes, it's a 531 frame. Just counted the cogs on the freewheel and it's a 23-14. Chainrings are Stronglight 52/42. He's gonna be huffin' and puffin' up the hills

The back wheel is toast. It has a huge whoopdy in it. Some spokes tight and some real loose. On the other hand you have a perfect front rim like it came out for a race. UGH.

Hills...... in Northern Michagan? I thought the glaciers got rid of them?

looks like a nice bike, it is really too bad the model decal is always the first to rub off.

Yup, I live in the northern part where all the hills are. The one I like to train on is a 2 mile, 578ft gainer....enough to work the quads anyway.

Yeah, too bad about the decal

Thanx! I just did a google image on it and this very well could be the bike from the looks of it. I'll head over to the Velo site and see about the spec pages. This one has clinchers, not the tubulars.

I miss the UP, used to ski up in Iron Mountain quite a bit back in the late 70's/early 80's Beautiful winter wonder land it was! IIRC, something like 12-14 bucks for a full day lift ticket. How can you beat that!
The time zone cuts through town over there so neighbors have clocks set different from one end of town to the other.

I'm a troll, Bgirll

If you look at the back of your left hand I live near the top of the ring finger.

Chombi, that's beautiful country up there. That's where my wife and I took our vacation, in the Porcupine Mts state park and touring the western end of the Upper.

wow, I didn't know that there was a black PX10 available in 70's.
Must be rare as hens' teeth. What's more, in quite unmolested state.

This one needs a back wheel. The rim has about 3 bends in it like someone laid cement blocks on it for a couple years. Cant even spin it. Amazingly stock condition with original tires, seat and handlebar tape.

I love finding vintage bikes that people stuck away and forgot about. If any of you know where I could get a complete back wheel for this bike I'd appreciate it...so would my friend that wants to ride it.
