Retro Peugeot I know the decals on this bike correspond to the period of 1964-1970 and looking at the one brochure of the time period I can find -1970- I know in that year they didn't have a yellow model so I am going with 1969. As for the model, every UO-8 I have come across has chrome fork tips, the entry level AO-8s cut a few dollars in cost by having painted forks. I have worked on a few UO-8s but this is my first AO-8.

I didn't think alot about this bike until I pulled it out of the queue and started looking it over. The first thing that struck me is that under the grime and dust this bike appears to have pretty good paint and decals considering its age. One major coup is that it has its original french leather saddle in good shape which is a rare find, the saddle is probably worth more than the bike! I don't think this Peugeot got left out in the rain much.
here. I am not sure what keeps drawing me back to old French bikes but I think funkiness is a major factor.
