I think they switched to the red, orange and yellow strips in 84 and continued thru 88. So I would say older than 84.

The pics in the link (specially the first 2 with the crankset pic in the way and the blurred sideviews of the bike) were horrible and I can't get a good view of the bike, so there's no way to get an idea what model Peugeot it is, but from what I can see in the rest of the pics, it could be an 82/83 model, judging from the graphics on the down tube and the seat tube.
Poor bike, looks like it was left for dead in a field to rust away from what I can see on the last pic. Even the edges of the decals on the frame are messed up already. No bike deserves that treatment even if it's not a high model one. I suspect that you'll have a beast of a time trying to get seized and corroded parts off the frame like the stem and seatpost, so I suggest you prepare yourself adequately, physically and mentally before (bravely) deciding to dive into this one....it might be too far gone to even bother with......
Good luck!
