Peugeot UO8 Road Bike - Brown
I wouldn't call any Peugeot UO8 road bike unique, since Peugeot made so many of them. But what makes this one mildly different from the rest is its small frame and brown paint. Because usually these bikes are 58cm and white!
This UO8 has a lugged "cadre allege" (according to Google: "lighter framework") steel frame with classic Peugeot graphics and a three-dimensional headtube badge. Weinmann brakes, Simplex shifters and derailleurs, Normandy hubs, Ridiga Chrolux rims, Lyotard pedals and stylish foam grips round out the parts package. A former owner added a Pletscher rack and swapped the original saddle for a wide padded Fuji seat, which looks conspicuously out of place.
Of course, there are the usual old-bike issues. A stuck stem wedge bolt, worn-out tires with a punctured rear tube, dirt, surface rust and dried-out grease in the bearings. But after an overhaul, this bike will be ready to tackle any diminutive hipster's daily Brooklyn Bridge commute.
