I just bought this Peugeot and having a hard time finding out what year and model it is. Can you please assist and help me. I think the third pic is the serial number: Y71241711.

  • Googling around seems to show that a PE10DW is an Aubisque, but I can't locate that model in any of the late 80s Peugeot catalogs on Bike Boom. – Andrew Henle Apr 22 at 15:21

  • Great resource. Thanks. The bike in that brochure is slightly different, with black hoods and the old style where brake cables come out the top, instead of the internally routed ones on the present bike. – ukrutt Apr 22 at 15:30
  • @ukrutt I suspect it's had new levers - I can't find when concealed routing became common but I think more recently than the rest of the bike was built, and the combination with that stem would seem unlikely – Chris H Apr 23 at 7:51

Nice bike! My hunch is that it's a late 80's bike. I have a ~1990 Peugeot bike/frame with similar shapes. You have sliding dropouts, I don't. What kind of components are on it?

As noted by @AndrewHenle this appears to be a 1987 or 1988 Peugeot Aubisque; it's a very good match for this (identified as) 1988 catalogue image from http://www.peugeotshow.com/:

1988 catalogue image of Peugeot Aubisque

I had previously found a less clear copy of the same catalogue at www.bikeboompeugeot.com where it was identified as a 1987 catalogue. The 1989 catalogue has an Aubisque with a slightly different paint job.

    thats it, you hit the straight on the head on that, it is a Aubisue. the numbers match 100% PE10D W – steve rollo Apr 22 at 15:40

    @steverollo Comparing, this is the better answer because it has more details over the accepted answer. – Criggie Apr 22 at 20:01

    Out of curiosity - what's the difference between the Saint-Bernard and the Aubisque? The only thing I can see is the paint job and the pedal gear. Is that all? – Vilx- Apr 24 at 9:21
  • @Vilx- Based on a quick translation of the ad copy text, the Aubisque appears to be a lighter weight racing bike, while the Saint-Bernard is presumably more general use? – Darrel Hoffman Apr 24 at 20:16
  • One more thing - this got me curious enough to see what history I can dig up on my own old bike. I know that it's a "SANTOSA" brand and it has "18 speed MTB" on it - which is pretty generic, but that's the closest thing to a model that I can find. It's from around 1995. Where can I go look for more leads, if it's at all possible? Quick google search revealed nothing. – Vilx- Apr 25 at 21:26
