What is a fair offer for this 1979 Peugeot?

Gorgeous Peugeot Racer Vintage Bike All new parts 60CM

I saw this bike on CL and it caught my eye. I know $650 steep for it, even with the modifications. I'm wondering what a fair offer would be for this kind of bike. Also, does anyone know about the quality of Peugeots? I've never ridden one so I don't know a whole lot about them. Thanks!

Hard to value...it's more a question of what it's worth to you. If someone asked me to sell it for them, I'd ask for 400ish and take 300. Modified bikes lik this are hard to value.

its in a different class by now... hardly a peugeot at this point though others may disagree. I'd say if all the modifications are to your liking and it fits, then its worth the 600 or so- its less vintage and more neo-retro like a soma or VO which would cost you more.

Good point. It has a lot of things I like, and I'm not too concerned about having an original. What I'm most concerned about is whether the Peugot frames are good or not, since that's about all that's left really

peugeot frames are great riders, even the lower end which this appears to be (but I am no expert, someone may come along who can recognize the exact frame). from all reports peugeot was able to create greatness from relatively cheap materials. go ride it and then you will know.
