These axles are from Normandy high-flanged hubs on my 1975 UE8.  The front axle photo shows the cones, washers and nuts in the order that they occur on the axle, with in the inner sides facing up on the left, and the inner sides facing down on the right.  The rear axle photo shows the cones, washers and nuts on the axle.  The front axle comes with ten bearings and the rear with nine.

This is a typical 6 volt 3 watt Soubitez 10 Dynamo wheel generator found on early to mid 1970s UE8's.  I will soon be posting a Soubitez 12 Dynamo generator photo on my 1975 UE8.

Soubitez front fender light

This is the typical large rectangular headlamp found on early to mid 1970s vintage Peugeot UE8's in the United States and Australia.  This is an L2 Featherweight, K 10687, that takes a 6 volt 2.4 watt bulb.  This light can be seen in the Soubitez 1973 Featherweight brochure on Robert Broderick's Wool Jersey website <>.

Soubitez rear fender light.

This is the typical tailight found on early to mid 1970s vintage Peugeot UE8's in the United States and Australia.  It is similar to the Catalux 8 Tailight pictured on Classic Bicycles' Virtual Parts Museum website  The markings on four tailights that I have examined are all the same:  SAE B 65 and SEIMA I E2 15.  The light takes 6 V 0.1 A bulbs.

The bulbs for these lights can be purchased from Reflectalite Ltd. in Great Britian.  The headlamp bulb stock number is GH93 6V 2.4W, and the tail lamp bulb GV601 6V 0.1A.
