Help Identify Peugeot 103's 1982-1990 era ?

We acquired this set over 6 years ago from a customer that owed money on his motorcycle repair (franchise Ural dealer 15 yrs). We had them stored in our shop (now retired) and are cleaning out the stuff we don't need. We were told they purchased them in France, rode them around while vacationing and brought them back to the U.S. I've been researching all the links this site provided and still unable to find this exact model and date of mfg. I think they might be Bordeaux models.

Greatly appreciate any and all thoughts about identity and value. Thanks !

The rainbow stripes suggest mid 1980s. You might find a date code on the rear wheel hub, 2 or 4 digit.
The name of the model is Tradition, model number being V35, per the paper decal. The model is listed in the French brochures, but a few of the key years are missing.

In condition as presented, I would estimate value of $150-$225 for the loop frame woman's bike. The men's bike I would estimate value of $125-$150.

Location in a metropolitan market on either coast would get a higher price than a smaller rural area.

Thank you so much for the replies and info ! I did find the Peugeot brochure site with a couple of the mid 80's French catalogs missing. I know some of the accessories on these bikes have a value in themselves and fully understand about the 'location' marketing advantage. When we were a dealer located 60 miles NE of Chicago it helped, but the power of the internet allowed us to place motorcycles in 37 states and sell parts/accessories to 14 countries. I recently joined another vintage bicycle site to learn about a 1940 BF Goodrich Schwinn Challenger DX we purchased 6 yrs. ago, everyone was very helpful in identifying and p.m. offers to me for the bike, $300. I placed it on eBay last week, sold in 4 days for $900.

Thank you again for all your help, gets me one step closer to cleaning out the shop building and adding to my SS retirement. Have an amazing weekend,

Flicka
