My best guess is this is an '84 Peugeot P8. The carbolite frame, decals, etc say P8. The full chrome fork says higher end racing model. The serial number: PH8-UAVB57X. I've looked up PH8s and can't find any matches. Thoughts on what model it is?

Looks a 1984 to me also, but I couldn't find an example of a P8 with chrome forks. The decals look about right for 1984. Check out this link and look at spec sheets for various years. I think that the P8 was renamed Israhan a bit later.

the fork could have been replaced (Tange chrome forks are readily available), certainly the dirt-drop stem isn't original.

I have a 1985 PH501 with chrome Carbolite forks. Perhaps there was a substitution at the factory - it would not have been much of an upgrade.

P8 would have been mid-range and depending upon the build date would have been constructed with Carbolite or HLE tubing AFAIK. It is a decent mid-range bike, but not valuable at all.
