Peugeot mountain/ commuter bike

I'm guessing late 80's vintage judging by the CAD (computer aided drafting) stickers. French manufacture. Really good condition, generator lights (not working but all there) fenders, rack. It all looks very original.

A few more pics to clarify.



Fenders appear original to bike. Wire for lights runs along the crimped underside of fenders, then is routed through frame. Six speed Shimano drivetrain. Very nice Rigida wheels. Any ideas as to value?

Even that sounds steep. Steel wheels, steel crankset. Unless Canadian Made Peugeots command a premium, that is not a valuable bike.

It's French if that makes a difference. Oh yeah, it's steel and probably weighs 35 pounds!

I agree with the price estimates above, but my personal opinion is that frame deserves better wheels and components. I've never seen CAD on a Peugeot. I think it could be a pretty cool commuter.

It's the CAD sticker that dates it I believe. When computer aided drafting came of age, almost overnight the old school pencil and table drafting was obsolete. Those guys that couldn't adapt to the computer found themselves out of a job. My Dad was one of them.

Anyway it's really a cool ride. The rear wheel is probably as heavy as my Trek road bike. It's a fun one for slow riding people watching in the park, and well, it's French you know? I like the funkiness of it, the off kilter reflectors, Chinese (?) Lee Chi brake levers... it's neat that it appears very much unmolested. (Aside from the tires I changed out, and the water bottle cage added for obvious reasons. The presumably original "Swallow" brand gumwall tires & tubes were sort of ugly & crusty. Rode like bricks. The darn tubes are supple and usable!)

I suppose all along I knew it was a keeper, but was hoping for a big price tag that I could brag about. Paid $80.

This was the bike adopted by the French Urban Assault Tactical Response Unit, FUATRU for those in the know. Bernard Hinault is an honorary member. The FUATRU are known for their annual picnic at the conclusion of the TDF on the Champs Elysees. They form a fence with their bikes and put out a spread like nothing you have seen before. Ahh....the french.
