Welcome to the bike-boomers website, dedicated to pugs sold during the 1960s and 1970s.
The BikeBoomPeugeot website is currently under reconstruction, so periodically revisit to see the progress...

I inherited a 1972 AO8 from my father who passed away from ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease) in 2005, and I restored his bike for sentimental reasons. Initially, during my internet research on the AO8, it was apparent to me that information about Peugeots from this time period was scarce. The Peugeot AO8 and its UO8, UO18, UE8 and UE18 siblings were entry-level and low-end bicycles sold in the United States during the 1960s and 1970s, especially in the early 1970s during the peak of the bike-boom . These were commonly the first ten-speeds ridden by baby boomers. As vintage bicycles, they do not garner the same respect as does their prestigious PX10 cousin. Also, opinions about them range from good to bad. Furthermore, it seems that there are a lot of these bicycles still around; as well as interest and curiosity about them, after they have been discovered in basements, garages, sheds, attics and barns. Consequently, in 2010 I decided to build a website focusing on the 'lowly' Peugeot A- and U-series bicycles of the bike-boom era. The website has expanded to cover the 'lofty' PX10 and its siblings, as well as Peugeot bicycles built after the bike-boom.
Donations for research to cure Lour Gehrig's Disease are very much appreciated.
This website is a labor of love, and I have invested significant resources in its development. If you enjoy and find it useful, please donate a few dollars to my fundraising effort to fight ALS. All donations go to the Blazeman Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit multi-sport organization dedicated to fighting ALS. See below for details on the Foundation. My daughter and I compete in triathlons for Team Blazeman in honor of Jon Blais, in memory of my father, to increase awareness about ALS, and to raise money for biomedical research to find a cure to this brutal disease. See us on the ALS Blattlefield.
