Normal-state properties of sputtered, evaporated, and sintered PbMo6S8 and CuxMo6S8 samples are reported (1.6x2.5). These include the temperature dependence of resistivity, magnetoresistance, and Hall effect. When combined with superconducting properties (measured on the same samples) and theory, a number of Fermi-surface and superconducting parameters are derived. Fits to the temperature dependence of the resistivity are compared with similar fits for A-15 structure superconductors.
