My C&V addiction deepens . . . with another %^&$ Peugeot!

Now that I've decided to nibble at restoring the old Pug I acquired last month, I find myself perusing CL daily and looking forward to Saturday to buzz by the local yard sales. Was doing some traveling yesterday and son-of-a-b, another Pug showed up on CL that just drew me in. I could not deny the force. I though my blue Pug was a decent buy but this one is very purdy.

The rims on this one have dimples which are different than my other mid 70's Pug which have the criss-cross lines. Anybody know which is older?

Don't fight the forces, resistance is futile.

Get on your bikes and ride!

Not sure which wheel is older but the pretty red UO8 dates from '70-'74. Nice find!

I bought a new orange version in 1975 to take to college after my Schwinn Continental got stolen. It served me well, and if you are resourceful, with upgrades (alloy wheels, alloy crankset, etc.) it can be a pretty competent bike.

Don't fight the forces of French evil. For all there problems issues it is just hard to deney the ride quality and great looks of some of the French bikes. This is one nice example of very pretty Pug in complete original condition for $100 or less I would have caved and braught it.

The bike looks like a '70-74 issue but dimpled wheel rims like those were still used and original to my '83 UE8.
I replaced them with Mavic Module E's.
- You should buy it and do the same - It makes a pretty decent rider into a beautiful killer road-machine.
