Overhaul Bottom Bracket On Vintage Peugeot Bike

Posted by on in Bottom Brackets


I disassemble, clean, lube, replace the ball bearings and re-assemble the bottom bracket on a early 70’s Peugeot road bike. I believe it’s a UO-8. The bike was made in France so has the right hand threading for the fixed cup. The bearings are loose with eleven 1/4″ ball bearings on each side. I also remove the cottered cranks and have to file new pins to fit. One of the cotter pins was stuck, so I had to drill it out.
