New bike(s) owner from Central PA

Just recently ventured into the MTB world and splurged on a nice Kona full squish. Also looking at a gravel bike in the near future.

But main reason I'm posting here is that I recently picked up a CL find, and ended up with an old Puegeot road bike (1970s?) and having trouble IDing it. It could be a ubiquitous UO8, but not totally sure. Anyway, I picked it up as a project bike for making an in and around town cruiser, knowing full well that it's going to be more challenging due to the French standards. Either way, thought it'd be a fun project to learn more about bikes and get better on my own for keeping my nicer bike(s) maintained. Already starting to get into the Park Tool videos and Sheldon Brown's amazing online legacy. Looking forward to getting dirty with this and all the bikes soon.

Welcome. You'll need to make 10 good posts before you can post those pics.

Dang. 10 is excessive. I've already got a good idea of which bike this is after 1 post on another forum that allowed me to post the pictures.

Maybe some day I'll get there.
