Ryan S. color-coordinated the tar out of this 1975 Peugeot UO-8, but still managed to bury the post.
1975-77 range Peugeot UO-8
I got this old Peugeot for $35 back in July and waited on the proper cotter pin tool before starting to work on it in November. I destroyed the last cottered crank I tried to work on but that’s another story. It wasn’t in particularly bad shape just musty and dusty with dry rotted tires and “all original” every thing else. After a good cleaning, waxing, polishing, rebuild of all main bearings, new; cables, housing, bar wrap, brake pads, saddle, rear derailleur (can you believe the Simplex one broke!?) etc.. etc.. it has new life and is ready to hit the road again. Allez Allez!
As always thanks for feeding my addiction to old 10 speeds with your wonderful site.
