Alot of this applies to the Univega as well, probably.
In general "mixte" frames don't command much resale value. The mixte is a superior design to the "women's" style frame you often see in department store bikes and really isn't a women's specific design though that is how they were marketed.
The Peugeot has alot of neat features but you're right about the frame tubing. How clean is it? I don't think, to be honest, you'd get much over $50-75 for either bike. They're "worth" more than that, particularly the Peugeot which would be a superb commuter, but that's the price the market brings.
