Submissions are welcome!

Early 1960s
These combinations of frame features occurred up until 1963, after which the more familiar checkerboard racing design appeared on bicycles.  According to the Classic Rendezvous' PX10 database, the checkerboard racing pattern was first used by Team Peugeot in 1963, but may not have been available to the public until 1967.  However, the 1964 French and 1965 Dutch catalogs clearly show the checkerboards on all the bicycle models. 

This frame appears to match the AO8 pictured in the early 1960s USA Dealer's Brochure (this website) and the PL8 in the Cycles Peugeot Velo Catalogue Pieces Detachees Et Accessories (below).  Thanks to Richard Bryne for submitting these photos.  This frame sold for $255 on EBay on 25 December 2007.

According to its original owner, this bicycle is believed to be of ~1963 vintage.  The serial number etched into the bottom bracket shell is 115739.  The UO8 described in the early 1960s USA Dealer's Brochure lists burgundy as one of the available colors (this website).  CyclArt refurbished this bicycle before selling to a collector in Japan.  Thanks to Greg for sharing these photos.

David Koski's 1962 Peugeot UO8 that came equipped with a Simplex JUY 61 Export rear derailleur.  This frame is identical to CyclArt's 1963 UO8, but with a half-painted fork.

1964 to 1970
This combination of frame features occurred up until 1970.  Although the 1970 and 1971 Franklin Imports' (New York, NY) brochures (that were dated based on component specifications) show this decal pattern, the same photos were used for both publications while the text was updated from one to the other.  In addition, similar photos appear on the United Import Sales, Inc. (Gardena, CA) page of Mark Thiffault's Bicycle Digest published in March 1972.  I have yet to see a well-documented 1971 UO-8 with these decals.

1975

Frames from 1975 had decals identical to the early 1970s.  The only difference was that a plastic headbadge replaced the foil decal on the headtube.  Please note that higher end models, but not lower end models had this plastic headbadge in 1974.

1976 to 1978

Note that although the frame decals and headtube badge were the same from 1976 to 1978, the shift levers migrated from the downtube to the handlebar stem in 1977.
