Just finished cleaning this up. Very nice bike and my first experience of Maillard Helicomatic. I had to replace the freewheel hub body which took a bit of working out but it now runs nice and smoothly.

A few parts replaced here and there but it's mostly original. I really like the colour.

That looks absolutely lovely. I can't believe how spotless that chrome-work is and the colour really works for the bike. It looks like it has benefited from Peugeot's in-external brazing technique to produce those super clean tube joins as well.
And congratulations with sticking with the Helicomatic! A system that, given time and enough money, had the potential to be the next world beater.

A very nice bike. I have fond memories of mine as it was the bike that got me into cycling 'properly' in the 80s. My bike was in a burgundy red colour. Replaced wheels with some mavic ma40s & eventually painted it in yellow & white which was a mistake but did many thousands of miles on it until moved on to higher spec bikes.
