I recently finished a renovation project on a classic Peugeot road/touring bike and was wondering what the model and production year of this bicycle is.

I tried but could not find anything myself. Perhaps one of you more knowledgable in classic bikes could help me identify the model/production year. I've attached a number of photos.

Some additonal info:

  • Simplex derailleurs
  • Frame number: y71210232
  • Atom hubs
  • Rigida rims


Here is a link to the rest of the images: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1vWegk_w2W92iAWccGJoYzEkW7v3aPSQz?usp=sharing

Thank you very much!

  • I'd guess an 80s touring bike, because of the downtube shifter, the front rack, the brakes, and the steel spoke protector.

    Mafac brakes, plastic capped shift levers, front ring protector, thin seatpost set in a bushing and cottered steel crank. I'd say late 60's early 70's. I've had a similar one in those days.

It looks a lot like this 1976 UE-8, except for the front rack.
