Peugeot PH10S value?

Hello All,

A little about myself... I'm new to this forum and new riding. I recently bought a Scott CR1 but quickly after immersing myself in the cycling culture have decided that I want another bike. It has to be vintage and I have a thing for the French. I have been trying to find a 86 Peugeot PH10LE but have not had much luck. Specifically an 86 because it my birth year.

I found this locally and was wondering if the price is worth it. Its not exactly what I'm looking for but it pretty close.
Any other information about this bike would also be greatly appreciated.

Peugeot vintage road bike PH10S 1982-1983

That's high. At this price, I'd expect, at least, decent quality tires. The tire is toast in one of the pics. Plus the bike has a hi tensile steel frame and a swaged crank. Not a bad bike but overpriced and the seller did a poor job of getting the bike ready for sale.

@elboGreaze is correct. $75 would be a good deal. $100 is a fair compromise depending on what you're looking for.

There's nothing wrong with the P10/PH10 bikes, but just one to two tiers up from that in the mid-80s like PSN10. PSV10 and PGN10 are way better and should be in the $200-$250 range in good shape. If you're hard up, PH501 is a solid pick for lightness, but only the main triangle is Reynolds 501. If you want a nice Peugeot, skip anything with a Carbolite or Carboprofil sticker, keep eyes peeled for Reynolds stickers, on the downtube or seat tube for main-triangle only, or bikes with a sticker on the fork are typically all Reynolds. For '86 and later Peugeot you'll find names on the frames. Triathlon, Galibier, Mont Cenis, Ventoux are solid picks. I have an '87 Tourmalet and '84 PGN10 and while the Tourmalet is a tier or two below the PGN10, for a solid and comfortable indexed ride, it's worthwhile.

thanks @francophile
I've been trying to find out as much as I can about Peugeot's. Don't think ill get this kind of information anywhere but the forums. I decided to hold out save the money and keep looking.
Will the 86 models mentioned be difficult to find parts for? I see there is a nice frameset on ebay. Any other advice for finding and buying these models (or an other recommendations for a beginner enthusiast)?
Side note: Any members selling/parting or know someone with an 86 Peugeot
I've been looking locally in South Florida CL for a while but have found some of these prices to be pretty unreasonable 250-300 for bike of the same condition.

That's the big question ^^ It'll better gauge what size of bike you need, which is more important than the year.

If year is important to you, you're in for a rude awakening: Most people don't know the year of their bikes. If you're looking for an '86 specifically, this is when they really started tossing names on the top tube, although it was a clear vinyl sticker that could be (and was often) peeled off by the owner.

I'd search for names instead of numbers. Mont Cenis was the highest quality named frame. Triathlon behind that. Then Galibier and Ventoux. I wouldn't go any lower than the Tourmalet, which is one more notch down and a good bike. Anything lower is still better than most other bikes in the same price point but not as prestigious IMO.

I doubt you'll be able to find a legit PZ/PY/PX/CY frame. The names I've just given are strictly North American market names. The French, German and UK bikes (at minimum) used different naming for the stickers on the top tube with exception of Mt Cenis and Triathlon.

Oooops sorry... Stats would probably be helpful
Current bike is a L 56 cm, I'm 6'0

I understand the year is a hit or miss because of production and store stock. Being in the right neighborhood is enough for me.

Was out of town for a few days and couldn't follow up. 56 sounds a little smallish for someone your size, may be on the small end of what you need depending on your inseam. at 6'0, 57-59 is probably more appropriate. You may be able to jack the seat up enough to get where you need to, but I'd hunt for something larger.
