Peugeot Centennial bike. Any value or purely sentimental?

Collecting my PSV in two days. Saw this for $150. Any value in terms of quality of tubing used and components? Saw HLE today and impressed at how much lighter than my 1978/79 road bike I just bought. Thanks for feedback.

Thanks Alex. Seems that Reynolds 531 is the holy grail as average price in England starts at $250. This bike is 103 Carbolite. I do like the internal cable routing though such clean look.

Interesting bike. Many manufactures used top of the line models for their anniversary editions.

That bike has the aero tubing, internal cable routing, and a real derailleur hanger. However, it appears to have been made of the carbolite 103 (high tensile steel).

I would say the bike is worth cleaning up. It is hard to say what the value is. If it was cleaned up, not full restoration, but clean and functional, it might be worth $200 +/- a bit. So, work backwards from that a bit to get your value. $100 to $150 doesn't seem bad.

That particular Peugeot is not all that common. Based on the pictures, my guess is that it will clean up nicely. It is not lugged nor is it super high end, but it will offer decent ride quality and be the only one on the block(probably). If it were offered to me for $150.00, I would already own it, assuming it was my size.

That's a less common model, which helps the value somewhat.

I would probably ask about flexibility on price after I saw it in person, but otherwise $150 isn't unreasonable.

Carbolite rides well, despite not having the bling and performance appeal of Reynolds.

I'm not sure why/how/where you're getting your info from, but your estimates have been pretty far off as of late. Next time it would help to provide some context when you're suggesting an appraisal value.

Thanks Billy and Randy for providing a more balanced view. Whilst I am new to vintage Peugeot pricing I have bought and sold my fair share of bikes from high range MTB ie Santa Cruz to vintage English bikes and lots in between. The condition of most vintage bikes in England will have rust due to high moisture whether it's left outside or in a drafty shed. Having a garage in England is a luxury unlike America. Anyway I'm collecting my PSV tomorrow catching 7am trains for 3+ hour journey. Cannot wait. Reckon I will be patient for a Reynolds 531 to come up. There's one on eBay UK for $180 but looking for a better deal and 54 cm frame. 57cm bit tall for me.

Never mind that it's Peugeot's Centennial bike, knowing how well Peugeot Carbolite frames ride, you cannot go wrong buying these bikes as long as you don't end up paying too much for them. Just don't expect them to appreciate in value big time, soon, because I think they made quite a few of them and many were squirreled away barely ridden for all this time by speculative buyers.

I like that !

Love the orange accents and aero shifters

I am irrational regarding orange though -- its my alma mater's color --- so i'd probably drag it home for 150 bucks

One point is that not everyone needs to be riding a pristine 70's or 80's racing bike.

Yeah, they're nice, but there aren't that many of them, and the high tensile steel bikes were really a bike for the masses, and many have lasted well with decades of use.

Sewups were the hot thing in the 70's and 80's, but really not that practical, even back then. Perhaps a bit better now with better puncture resistance and sealants.

I am a little surprised that Peugeot didn't use some chromoly alloy on their anniversary bike, but my guess is this was situated as a top tier high tensile bike for sale to the masses.

Bike choice would really depend on your intended use though. The Peugeot Anniversary bike might clean up nicely for local vintage shows. Trying to catch the wind of the local racing club, and maybe choose something racier. It would, however, make a sexy commuter.

I really doubt that bike cracks 150 in my area, and being an uncommon model really only matters insofar as someone wants it and there's limited supply; I don't think that's the case here. It's an entry level bike with the French thread pain assery. If someone offers 125, take it.

I live in Upstate New York, where old Peugeots are a dime a dozen. People just donate bikes like this to charity rather than spend the time marketing them online. You live in Hawaii, where any bike that rolls is probably worth $200.

The factor here in England is that most do not own cars to go collect a bike from all over the country unless you are a nutter like me that takes trains for a cool bike. Thus collect only bikes sit on eBay and bought by locals. I paid $90 train fare just to collect my PSV. Definitely taking her to my grave.

(RARE) 1982 Peugeot PH12 Centennial Aero Road Bike 100th Anniversary - $400


...59 cm frame size. This guy is a regular seller on the local CL, but his prices always seem to be fair considering condition and quality of the bike for sale. Unfortunately for you, I don't think he'll ship one, but I guess you can ask.

They pop up once in a while at eBay......
Problem is, most sellers ask for too much for the bike, which when one thinks of it, is really just a PH10 with squashed tubes and a few nicer components.
It still is quite a nice bike, It's just many owners/sellers think that the "Centennial Edition" moniker attached to the bike automatically makes it twice or three times its original value.
Good thing is, a lot of people who bought the bike did not ride them too much and squirreled them away for many years in their attics and basements, speculating that they will be worth a lot of money in the future, so it is common to find these in very good to almost new condition.

I've seen a couple over the last two years on eBay for $200 or less. One I posted a few times in the eBay finds thread, it was at a shop in New England area, I don't think it ever sold after several iterations and the price dropping to like $120 with very reasonable shipping, or local pickup?

These were Swiss threaded on the bottom end. Nothing special, ride fine, look nice, good colors, but not any better than a PH10 or P10S at the end of the day, and sharing several of the same features.

While it would be a nice collectors bike in very good original condition worth $400-450 true full 531 hle internal lugged frames are pretty rare and look and ride great. The issues are it is ugh but fixable shape with a bunch of either none original or iffy components so figure on $200 to get everything ride ready. So I would say pay $150 for it no questions if the frame is strait and your size.
