    Which Peugeot bicycle do I have? I'm stuck.

    I can't figure out which kind it is... it is all original, but nothing from http://www.peugeotshow.com/ seems to fit it. Any help would be great!






    Thanks

    Yes, I was thinking P8E also, but the pump is in the wrong spot so I'm not sure. Nevermind, look the chain guard isn't there on the P8E for the rear wheel and the front.
    Doubting the P8E, but the decals match the P8E.

    Thank you! I hadn't seen those catalogs. It's definitely a '74 UE8, are these worth anything? It's in pretty good shape for the year, except for the rear flat tire and missing pump.

    People want bikes ready to ride. Just a flat tire can knock the price down $50. It will make buyers wonder about the rest of the mechanical condition. Imagine you went to a car dealership to buy a used car, and all of their used cars had flat tires. What would you think? And most buyers don't realize how cheap it is to replace a tube. But in your case, both of the tires are shot too.

    Get it fully ready to ride, paint and chrome appears to be in really good shape, and you will have something. It is a bottom end boomer bike, but people just like old Peugeots. Raise that seat.

    As is, some flipper would probably give you $75 for it. He would clean it up, new cables, tires, and tubes, and sell it for $200.

    I have been flipping Peugeots more then other bikes just cause I like them. I have been selling mostly UO8's in excellent condition for about $180. Yours has really nice fenders and the condition of the frame looks great. Get the tires aired up or fixed, clean and make sure it shifts and stops good and ask $220, but don't go lower then $200 on this bike unless your hungry
