I call this bike a UO 2006. I don't know what the frame tubing is as the frame was bought from a closeout at a Texas bikeshop over eBay. All of the parts are new old stock, except the seat and brake lever rubber covers, the brakes and the fork. The frame was produced by Procycle at their factory in Beauce Quebec. It is internally fillet brazed which is Peugeot's patented frame building technique. it rides wonderfully and brings back the joy of my first 10 speed, a UO-8 bought in 1971 and stolen in the spring of 1972 as I slept; I heard the freewheel ticking when they took it away. All I have left of that bike is the Mafac toolkit which still rides with me wherever I go, particularly to my favorite spot on the Black River Trail (last photo).
