Take full size pictures, use photobucket or flickr to host. Sell them separately. Raise the seats to at least the height of the handlebars. They should not last long regardless, but better marketing will get you more $$ and faster sales.
Assuming the P8 has steel rims, I would be putting a set of alloy rims on it. With the smaller size, once it has alloy rims, it would be pretty desirable. Fortunately I have some donor bikes where I can "borrow" some wheels.
Pictures sell bikes. More quality pictures, full size. Craigs List pictures suck, really suck. Buyers can't see details, cleanliness, bikes just don't pop.
Both are low end, stem shifter bikes. But buyers like Peugeots, and will pay a premium for them.
