What bb thread for a peugeot ph8?
#1
Hi there ,

Ive been given what I believe to be a peugeot ph8 by my uncle . Ive narrowed the year down to somewhere between 79 and 83 .
The serial number is 0931716 PH8CE 60.

Here are two pictures of what I think is the exact same model except my one has cottered cranks .

I'm trying to source a new bottom bracket for it but I cant yet figure out what style threads it has ,British , Swiss or French ,

I'm hoping to figure it out so that I can pop in one of these cartridge cottered bottom brackets .

I'm going for cottered as the original cottered cranks are in good shape and id like to keep them . The problem is that I cant figure out what threading the BB will have , swiss , french , or British . Anyone know which it would be or how I could find out ? If all fails my backup plan is new cranks and a threadless BB .

Tough to say. It sounds like Peugeot used all three threadings during this period.

I suspect the only way to be sure is to measure the threading on the frame. If the drive side cup has normal threads, then it's french. If it has reverse threads, it could either be british or swiss thread.

It the current BB damaged?

On a Simplex equipped Peugot the odds favor French/Swiss. Are there any markings on the face of the fixed or adjustable cups, or on the crank arms (may need to clean with solvent to see them)? Also, are the pedals marked R/L or D/G? Sutherland's Bicycle Manual used to have a guide that allowed on to determine the threading by the appearance of the fixed cup.
