Just wish we had as many yard sales over here as you have- The few we have and not many bikes and vastly overpriced if they are there. Just because a bike cost 300 in 1979 doesn't mean that it can sell for 200 today. But some mug always buys them.
We have the same here - plus some who think $20 is a great windfall. The Peugeot is medium quality - I have a better PX10 that I just got some Campy high flange wheels laced to new rims! She'll be complete now.
I will fix up the Bianchi and at least ride her to work.

As soon as I win the lotto. There are only four community yard sales per year nearby. It takes a lot of work to fix up these bikes and a lot of money to keep my wife.
