Help ID'ing this Peugeot

I just acquired this bike from a relative that I'm hoping to restore.

Here are some photos: https://imgur.com/a/P1AKi

EDIT: I think i figured it out, '85 P8. Any guidance for restoring/replacing parts? At the moment, tires & brakes need replacing.

I can't help much with the year but other than a good cleanup I see little that needs restored. the only things I might replace are the cables, brakepads and tires.



take a look at some of the pics in the other threads. Can you give us a good straight on side shot of the headtube/fork area? makesure the front wheel is nice and straight.

A PH10, 11 or 12 (sorry, when I pick one of those numbers its usually turns out to be the other, but those model bikes are very similar) from around 1983.
A lower level model sport bike from Peugeot at that time. Built with Peugeot's "House" Carbolite 103 High tensile High carbon tubing, using Peugeot's internally brazed lugless construction. Components are most likely basic Weinmann/Stronglight/Maillard mix.
Despite the bike's humble specs, it should ride very nicely as Peugeot had pretty much perfected their frame design and geometries in the 80's and that's where the real value lies in these lower spec 80's Peugeots. Well worth restoring to roadworthy condition not as a bike to sell and make money on (because they don't sell for much) but a bike to actually ride/use...

I agree with replacing the cables, brakepads and tires. Since those are the main parts that is keeping it from riding at the moment. Any recommendation for tires or how do I go about choosing the right set?





same bike?

It could be the angle but something about that fork worries me. The upper part of the blades should follow the same line as the headtube. Again it could be the angle it may be off just slightly. Not enough to be dangerous but perhaps worth having checked.

LOOKS LIKE THE RIGHT ID

If you plan to keep and ride, Panasonic Panaracer Pasela tires, 27 X 1 1/4, about $20 each.

If you plan to sell it, Kendas for $10 will do fine.

I went to visually inspect it and it appears to be aligned with the fork, just a bad angle with the photo since I was limited in where I was standing. Thanks for pointing it out!

Thanks oddjob2 for the recommendation!

I'm going to dissent on the P8 identification and go with a 1985 P6, as the P8 had alloy bars and center-pull brakes, whereas the P6 was spec'd the steel bars and side-pull brakes like the OP's bicycle.

Sounds sort of like AO-8 vs. UO-8 in the 1970s. Both had centerpull brakes and steel bars, but the AO-8 had a painted fork, sprint (half) handlebar tape, and wingnuts instead of a half-chrome fork, full tape, and QR hubs.

Dr. T-Mar is right 99.9% of the time, though the above catalog page says steel handlebars. I do believe that by this vintage, Peugeot had the paper tag with model # and serial # on the chainstay on the left side of the bike where the kickstand was frequently installed. About 1/2 the Pugs I have gathered still have the tags on them.

That's because the above catalog page is from 1984, not 1985, which was the basis for my comparison. In 1985 the P8 switched to aluminum bars while the P6 retained the steel bars. Both 1984 models were spec'd with Huret Eco derailleurs while both 1985 versions had Shimano Z-series, which the OP's bicycle appears to have.

Ughhh...... looks like I might have missed again with the model ID.......P6, P8, PH10, PH11, PH12,...the basic Carbolite 103 frames are pretty much the same and ride the same. It comes down to just the slight differences in the components and graphics which get slightly better as the model number goes up on the bike.... (BTW, there's a PH12 Peugeot Centenary special too, which would have been top of the Carbolite 103 line...but with kewhl squashed aero profiled main tubes.)
I guess at least I'm sure I know what an 82 PH10S looked like as I owned one!

Well, I think I can ID a UO-8 from a PX-10 ninety percent of the time now!

Just make sure you can do it 100% of the time, when you are the one doing the buying and/or selling!
