Depends where you are located, around here, it would not bring $300. Your market is better, so maybe. I would install brake lever hoods.

I agree hoods would give it a finished look. IMHO the levers look like cheap DiaCompe that somebody took the turkey levers off of.



more / better pics? looks like a nice ride

Peugeot was going through a transformation with their model lines at that time where they were starting to eliminate most French components from their bikes, so it might not be that unusual to have a mix of components brand parts on your bike. Although there are some on it that seem to indicate upgrades/replacements like the rims, stem, rear derailleur and saddle. Rims might have been originally Mavic Module Es, the stem an Atax Aero, the rear derailleur a Huret/Sachs Rival and the saddle, a Selle Italia "Mundialita".
French/Peugeot bike fans/collectors are kind of fickle about what components are on the classic French bike they are buying and usually prefer all original, as came from factory parts.
$300+- might be a good baseline number to start with as your bike seems to be in very good clean condition, from what I see in the pic provided (More. closer shots of the bike will be helprful). You will certainly get a bit more for the bike if it was all original and in close to mint condition. IIRC, these mid level 501 framed Peugoet originally sold in the high $300s to right at $400, depending on the component group that came with the bike.

Thanks alot chombi! Some of the parts i did upgrade myself (stem, rims, rear derailleur ) the original rims had no stampings on them i have no idea what they are, i still have them, all it has is mailard hubs and a mailard helicomatic freewheel. maybe you can identify. the stem was CTA, and i still have the H&R rival derailleur here. I have heard these models were a bit pricey back then. The original components are still good i just got a little carried away on some upgrades because i really like this specific model, and i've had two previous peugeots both the lower end common peugeots from the mid 70's (record due monde, cotterd cranks etc.) My younger brother had two very nice peugeots an Avoriaz and a Boardeux as well that is what wanted me to find a nicer model peugeot. I usually don't buy a bike for more then 100 but it was 150 and i had to have it, and i'm stoked on how it came out! Very smooth ride.
